First RN job & it's payRegister Today!
- by Stephen.Stevens Jun 30, '11Hello everyone,
I would like as many responses as possible. I am located in Houston, Texas but looking to working to work anywhere in the US. I am about to get my RN license and I have started looking for a job. What should I expect my salaray or my wage/hr at my first job as a RN with no experience? If people would tell me their personal pay they received at there first job would be helpful. I've researched the web and found just a scattered range of pays. Your responses will be very appreciated. Thanks!Last edit by Stephen.Stevens on Jun 30, '11
- Jun 30, '11 by CrunchRNPeople need to know where you are located as it varies greatly regionally.
- Sorry about that. I am new to "allnurses.com". I fixed the thread and put my location. I am from Houston, TX.
- Quote from UPSBossmanThat's not even $40K after taxes. Any idea what her pay would be at after 10 years of exp.?I'm in San Antonio, Tx. My wife is a RN (1 year now) and we both work at the same system. Here, RNs are starting around $21.50, a little more if you have experience (2 years clinical, 3 years non-clinical)
- Jun 30, '11 by Lissa,RNI am in Montana. My first job as an RN, the job I still hold pays $24 an hour. It's in long term care in a less than desirable facility though. The cost of living is quite low here, but we actually do have a bit of a shortage of nurses in the town I live in, so they have to pay higher to have any staff at all.
