Cath Lab, IR & EP Wage Trends and Analysis

Welcome to the Phoenix Monthly Market Analysis for all travel jobs in Cardiac Cath Lab, Interventional Radiology and Electrophysiology! We’ll break down last month’s newest high-paying jobs with state-by-state analysis and nursing vs tech breakdowns.

A Slowvember…depending on who you ask
The MPSs have markedly diverged in their behaviors over the past few months.  There once was a time where most programs in the same area had similar rates – but not anymore.  We’re seeing AMN programs in Virginia and DC coming with much higher rates than other MSPs with hospitals in the same neighborhoods.  Some programs (let’s say the ones known for cost cutting) have been posting at very low rates and we’re seeing them regularly reposted just a few weeks later.  It matters a lot, which means that travel agencies have a responsibility to tell you what’s going on!  Make sure to think ahead and ask the question!
