what is the salary for RN's in Connecticut

  1. 0 Hi everyone! I have been looking around this ct forum to see if I can find out just how much an RN can make...hospital, visiting nurse or Doctor's office? I have tried the salary.com site, but, can it be accurate??? Why is the pay soooo low? Any one out there work at Hartford Hospital, New Britain General or UCONN? I look forward to any input/advice. Thank you!

    hello Julie... I did clinicals at Hartford and back in 2003 the pay was around 22 an hour. Differentials if you work eve or nights. So I believe someone I knew who was doing the night was going to get aroud 25$ as a new nurse. I hope this helps good luck!

    St Vincent Medical Center in Bridgeport starts new grads at $62,000 a year working days. I hope I was able to help. I know Greenwich and Danbury pay more according to friends.

    From all the hospitals I know of, starting base is $24.50 to $27.75 an hour. Diffs can add $2 to $8 to that.

    Hi!

    I'm starting at a New Grad ICU program. I interviewed at St Ray's and Y-NHH, which started me at $26 and $26.05, respectively.

    Thank you all for your replies!! I'm now in the process of getting my resume together...I thought with the "nursing shortage" it would be easy to find a job. Not true!!! I'm very discouraged. My specialty is woman's health...and I can't find a job! Any advice/input?
    Thanks!

    It's not very easy as a new grad with a specialty (I can attest to that). I was looking for labor and delivery and had a rough time. What kind of "women's health" are you looking for? I found that more hospitals hired new grads for postpartum and mother baby than L&D. However, I kept looking and found a job in L&D as a new grad. I work at St Vincent's and they started us at $27/hr. Shift diffs here are good too (I now work nights).

    Other places I encountered that hire (or consider hiring) new grads into L&D: Yale (but often they hire those working there as a techs first), Bridgeport Hospital, St Mary's in Waterbury, Hospital of Central Ct in New Britain. You just have to talk to different places and find out what they hire new grads into and apply for jobs even if they aren't posted. Be persistant because if that's what you really want, you should go for it!

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Babycatcher, I did not mention in my previous post that I am an RN returning to the work force after many years home with my children. I worked on a womens health unit. We had everything from high risk ob to post partum complications to gyn med/surg to fetal demise. I just finished a 5 month rn refresher course(the course included several weeks of clinical on med/surg unit). So I guess I'm like a new grad....but, not really. lol

    Hi Everyone,

    Planning to move to CT next year. I was offered a RN position in Bridgeport Hospital. With my experience, I could choose between ICU and Angioplasty Suite. Anybody know if there is any pay difference between the two, and what about the work load and nurse to patient ratio? Which area is nicer to work?

    Thanks a lot!

    Gemma
