    No. I think you'd be doing good with about 22 an hour.... nights.

    $35/hr to new grads in Az? Ha Ha that's too funny! When I left in 2002 they were getting $18-20. Now in Sacramento new grads get near that.

    I just was hired in tucson and was quoted a base pay of 19/hr. With night shift it will be around 21/hr. I WISH IT WAS 35!!

    I am a block 3 student at Boswell and we had the Nursing Director come in from Estrella Banner Hospital and said starting pay for a new grad is $25.60. That is from the horses mouth. I was in the room. His wife is in our class.

    I heard recently between 27.00 and 29.00/hr but it probably really depends on the hospital.
