Emergency Room Registered Nurses represent the higher end of the earnings spectrum — in fact, median pay for this job is the highest at approximately $37.98 per hour — though Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, and Pharmacy Technicians also do fairly well at $36.24, $21.87, and $21.00, respectively. Financial compensation for Certified Nurse Assistants is rather low — on average only around $13.59 — relative to the rest of the company.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $41.00 per hour) can be spotted in La Mesa, Calif.; Chula Vista, Calif. (around $35.00), the company's headquarter city of San Diego, Calif. ($29.69), and Coronado, Calif. ($18.49) are the next top-paying cities.

Years of Experience

Average pay is $30.65 per hour for those with five to nine years of experience. Broken down by tenure, the largest share of Sharp Healthcare employees (35 percent) have one to four years of experience and earn about $25.20 per hour on average.

Certifications and Degrees

Salaries approach approximately $46.48 per hour for Certified Critical Care Registered Nurses; non-accredited workers make much less. Those with a Doctorate (PhD) at Sharp Healthcare come out on top, and their salaries approach around $52.50 per hour.


The best-paying skill to have in this role appears to be Intensive Care Unit; employees who claim this ability report median compensation of approximately $41.55 per hour. Acute Care is regularly seen around here; roughly a sixth of those surveyed report it as a core competency. Other top skills include Medicine / Surgery, Customer Service, and Elder Care.

Benefits and Perks

Only 28 percent enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Those seeking to set aside retirement funds can rely on several savings options such as a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. At Sharp Healthcare, a large number of respondents have health insurance, and most workers have dental coverage. Some other advantages of working at Sharp Healthcare are life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and flexible hours.
