    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

    This shows top pay, not new grad pay.

    As a new LVN on Med/Surg in San Diego County, I was hired at $18 with a $3 shift differential... hope that helps.

    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.

    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.
