    New grads (RN) in san diego make 25-27$/hour on days with approx. a $4 shift differential. The pay is even higher in union hospitals. From what I hear, San DIego county is the lowest paid RNs

    The salaries vary based on where you work. My son just graduated from LVN school and he is waiting for his license. Two of his friends just got jobs making $20.00/hr as new grad LVN's, but one turned down another position that offered a few dollars less but would have paid off her student loans. I don't know the going rate for new grad R.N.'s, but I know when I graduated 7 years ago, the salaries in L.A. varied. You have to compare salaries, benefit packages, etc.Some may offer a little less, but may offer tuition reimbursement if you return to school and more frequent increases. All new grads -please look at the whole package before you accept a position! If you can, find out more about where you are going to work from other nurses.

    Hecky poo....I was a travel nurse in Palm Springs, CA for the last few months, and they only paid me $27/hour! Did they rip me off or what! And...I'm a "seasoned nurse" at that! :angryfire
    You've got to be joking! I'm an experienced E.R. nurse, and even though I've never worked for a travel agency, I get calls all the time. Never been offered less than $41.00/hr and this is separate from the housing payment.

    FOR Sutter Health in San Fran, new grads start at $35.00/hr. A recruiter just informed me two days ago. But a gallon of milk may be $100.00!

    Hi everyone, I'm doing so research on LA county and the surrounding areas. Besides UCLA, and Cedars, which other hospitals are in this area? Does anyone work in the area and care to share? Thanks.
