New Grad Pay Denver "atleast" $28?Register Today!
- by Coloradogrl Sep 23, '08Ok, I just wanted to start out with saying I KNOW this is a topic that has been beat like a dead horse but I dont know where else to ask this:wink2:
I was wondering in the DENVER METRO AREA what a new grad RN ADN is looking at making?
A friend and I have been told soooo many different ranges from starting at at $30 to making $40 as a travel nurse right out of school so I figure I would come here and ask. We are both looking at working in hospitals hopefully after we graduate and like others have said most of the hospitals dont post salary ranges on their websites.
Thanks in advance for all your help
- Sep 24, '08 by COLPNYou can look to make "at least" $23/hr. as a new grad. I'm sure you can find somewhere that pays a bit more and maybe a bit less. But from my research new grads can make at least $23/hr in the front range.
- Sep 24, '08 by hope3456It depends on what shift you want to work......night shift differential is around $5-$6/hr from my experience. Some places pay extra for weekend shifts. And if you work PRN (no benefits) the hourly pay is substantially higher, but you need experience for that.
- Sep 29, '08 by ColoradogrlI thought $23 or so was about right but I have heard soooo many things and I know every company is different. I guess all I will have to do is pretty much wait and see
