Starting Nurse Salary in CT

  1. 0
    I am just wondering what the starting nurse salary is for a new RN with a BSN in the CT area, specifically around the New Haven city/Fairfield County. I am looking to go into ED or SICU. I know most facilities may not have a pay differences for those with a BSN. Any info on pay and facility is appreciated.

    I know Saint Raphael's is $26.00/hr. Yale is about the same - I believe $26.05/hr.

    Most starting salaries up here by Hartford are around $26 to $27 an hour. Pay attention to your differentials though. For me, at the job I took, my diff made a huge difference.

    Differentials are "extra" money in addition to your base hourly salary.

    For example lets say your base hourly salary is $25.00 per hour. And lets say you decide to decline benefits, at some places you get "extra" money or differential of $1.50 on top of your hourly $25, and lets say you decide to work the 3p-11p shift, you may get a differential of $0.75, and maybe on weekends you get an additional differential of $0.50.

    So now lets say you are working the 3-11 shift on a Saturday or Sunday, your hourly rate of pay will be the $25 + $1.50 + $0.75 + $0.50 =$27.75 per hour on Saturday and Sunday.

    Now lets say you're working the 3-11 shift on Monday -Friday, your hourly rate would be $25 + $1.50 + $0.75 = $27.25

    I hope that makes sense.
