    Like new grads? I think it's around $23.

    $22.50 with a bump to $25 after you finish the program.

    Surely there is something more? $42K/yr is crap! Or is that $22.50 just for the first 6 months? Not that $47K/yr is much better.

    My understanding after talking to two nurses I work with who are currently in the new grad program, the bump in pay takes place after you finish the program, which takes a year.

    This is base pay, and doesn't include shift differential, which is significant. You also need to consider the really good benefits they offer, compared to other facilities.

    23 p/h is the base starting pay over here too.
