Starting Pay for New Grads RN's in Southern CA

  1. Hi all,

    I have been trying to find accurate information about the starting salaries in a hospital environment around southern CA (preferably OC/LA county) and all the information I have come across were outdated. I was wondering if anyone can provide me insight on the starting hourly wage for New Grads in Socal, which hospital, and if it was due to a New Grad program or a regular nurse position.

    Thanks soo much! cheers!

    P.S. partial information would still help! thanks.

    P.S. I'm specifically looking for BSN RN New Grads

    I'm further south than OC/LA, but new grads at my facility start in the low $30s. BSN/MSN grads make a little more (I think it's 50 cents an hour) than a non-BSN.
