New grad pay

  1. Hi All!

    I was just offered a job with Banner Good Sam on one of their med/surg floors as a new grad. They want me to come in to HR next week to finish all the new employee paperwork. When they told me I got the job they didn't bring up salary and I didn't want to either because I heard whoever brings up salaRy first, loses )

    Since I am going in next week and they will probably tell me then what my starting pay is, I wanted to ask what is the starting salary? I remember when I first started nursing school, we were told by our clinical faculty that it was around 28-30. I realize with the economy now, it has decreased. But, what should I expect?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know for a fact that new grad ADN pay for Banner is $25.xx. I've never heard Of new grad pay at 28-30, that might be with shift diff. I think BSN get a dollar more. Congrats on finding the mythical unicorn of a new grad job at Banner. Were you a fellow?

    Thanks for the info! I just got my BSN and I was a Fellow. $26.xx sounds great!! I heart Abrazo pays like $22.xx, which seems kind of low so I am so glad to hear Banner pay is better. )

    It's just good to see that hospitals in Arizona are starting to hire new grads again. Here in Tucson, the job market appears to be picking up a bit. We are hiring 3 new grads.

    Hey congrats on the Job NyGirl!!
    I was just offered a job @ St Joes on nights & havent heard from HR yet about when I should come in (ok I'm getting way too antsy, I was offered the job 4 hours ago lol), but I'm curious- I've heard Joes pays way less than the other hospitals, does anyone know what they pay new night shift RNs?

    My hospital hires new grads for this pay range. They even pay more than that for night shift.

    Oh and congrats on getting hired. I did clinicals in Banner Good Sam's ICU and loved it!!

    Be thankful you don't work for Mountain Vista MC. They pay their NGs, $18/hr.

    Chuck, where did you get this info? I work for Tempe St Lukes as a GN, both hospitals are owned by IASIS, and I wasn't offered that low...... My offer was on target with Banner's GN pay....

    Apparently, MVMC has a new head of nursing or some such. I have heard this for some time, but my friend talked to a nurse that works at MV and she verified it.

    And though they are IASIS hospitals, things sure are different.

    And which hospital starts new grads off with 28 an hour? I would love to apply

    With shift diff, $28-$30 is very reasonable for new grads!

    How about nurses with 1.5 years of experience as a Rn and 5 years as a Lpn? Would we expect the new grad pay rate? My expectations are around 28.50 to 29.50 base pay is that to extreme?
