im gettin my interview tomorrow and ill find out...but im just very curious and nervous...about it..
I don't know about an Anaesthesia Technician, but I read somewhere on this board that nurses that deal with anaesthetics get PAAAAID!!! I don't really know why. I mean, most nurses are paid so little for doing such technical work, and yet a nurse that deals with anaesthetics gets paid heaps more.
So for your situation, I'd expect some decent dough.
In the UK anesthetists have to train longer than yer average surgeon. So I'd hope/guess they got paid more.
A fair bit.
Those are docs, though. He's talking about a tech position, which has quite a different payscale.
However, I'm not sure what that pay is...Less than what a nurse would get, but if the trend for the anasthesia specialty carries over into techs, then more than techs in other fields probably get.
I have a friend who is a nurse anesthetist, and she makes about 130K, her malpractice insurance, however.
Wow! That's fantastic for a nurse! That competes with a pediatrician's salary! And does the nurse need all that much malpractice? After all, liability usually falls on the attending physician, right? That's part of the reason docs get paid the big bucks.
Well, they are very close.
Our friend does everything that an anesthetist does, just in pieces. Bascially, since there are never enough anesthetists, three surgeries may have only one anesthetist (MD) and one nurse anesthetist...they trade places monitoring, administering etc...
A CRNA is an anesthetist
An MD is an anesthesiologst
At the hospital I work at (The Cleveland Clinic), Anesthesiologists generally rank among the highest paid M.D. positions, along with the real hotshot cardiac surgeons. Experienced technicians make a fraction of the M.D.s, but when the Anesthesiologist's salary is in the millions (several here make that much), a fraction is a big chunk of change!
We regularly have royal visitors from the Middle East; On one occasion not too long ago a grateful (and wealthy) recipient of heart surgery gave each member of the entire team a gold Rolex! So there are additional perks.
....yup they're the first person to get sed in a botched surgery so be prepared for that.
Don't know - I slept through that class...
Edit: Remember - never volunteer....
i just called the HR today and they want me to wait until 21st of monday...
the boss is out of town and i need to wait! I CANT......
would it be rude for me to ask about the pay rate? and benefits?
honestly what would u guys expect? 15 bucks an hour? 20 ? 25 ?
Acording to this website the average (american) salary for this Position is:
YOu can read the entire report if you wish.
Hope that helps.
At the rate I quoted earlier, it would be about $12.50 an hour. Of couse the rate would change depending on state/location. I would say from $10 to $15 an hour, if the website I got my information is correct.
EDIT: Noticed you are in Hawaii, lucky @#$%, the median salary for that position in Hawaii is $30,850, low of $27,003, and high of $35,502.
So the Median per hour rate would be $14.83, low rate of $12.98, and high rate of $17.06. These or not scientific nor conclusive. Just a rough estimate.
thank you to all those that responded..
so would it be rude to call and ask?
im already makin 14-15 as a cardiac tech
i still go to school but i pay for college myself...
just lookin for a better job
My neighbor is an anesthesiologist and he makes a LOT more than 130k. I'm thinking he makes around 250k++ and his wife is a dietician.
dietician are so underpaid..
the ones in hawaii is like 40 k..?
Never ask immediately about pay when going for a new job.
It doesn't give the right impression... if you get a second interview then maybe... or even if they ask you if you have any questions at the end of an interview.
The main aim is to appear interested in the work itself.
See if you can do a little research on the web first for your area.
last friday, at the end of my first interview...she asked me if i had any questions..
i said nope...(i wasn't sure if i should've said anything)
then she said ok on monday u call HR and to find out salary and benefits to see if your still interested...
today, i called, the interviewing boss went on vacation = (
i gotta wait until next week and im stuck now...
should i call HR back and ask?
waitin 1 week is soooo LONG! I CANT WAIT!
In that case, yes.
Call HR, that's one of the things they are there for.
Don't worry... she said OK.
If she said to call and find out, then do it. But if you are making 14-15 dollars an hour now don't be surprised if the pay is the same or at least similar (read: my posts above). In which case compare the two jobs, pro/con, and decide which one works best for you. Make sure to consider stress, hours (including start and end time, ie what time in the day does it start), benefits, commute, if any, etc.
It may be a better jobn even if it doesn't "pay better." Pay isn't everything, though it sure does help
aye ya...its pretty much the same = (
very sad and disappointing...i was hoping it would pay more....
but i think it will be nice to work in a different environment...something more technical..?
now i dont know what to do....ugh...i was hoping the pay to be higher than what i have now and being able to learn something new
sigh...my original plan was to hope anesthesia paying more...while i go thru school and finish my bach in business admin, (already in 2nd year, i cant quit now) and then apply for med or law, hence it requires a 4 yr degree...
at first i was going to just get my AS in business and apply xray/imaging
and stop there...knowing i need money to pay off my college debts...
now my jobs will pay smiliar...and dont know what to do......
sorry if this sounds very confusing to you all, as of now im very confused myself....lost.....just confused in general..
See it as a stepping stone to something else... try and forget about it for today. Sleep on it, things always look better the next day... go out and have some fun for now... you don't have to make a decision right now this minute.
stepping stone but with less money?
i cant agree with that on my mind
someone SHOOT ME! IM GOING NUTS HERE! ARGH..
