    Like others have said, new grad RN pay is dependent on your location and the overall cost of living there.

    The new grad in rural Oklahoma will receive a starting wage of $18 to $19.50 per hour, while the new grad in the San Francisco Bay area of California might start out at more than $50 per hour. Then again, living in rural Oklahoma is significantly cheaper than living in San Francisco.

    Can't use San Fran as a reference to the whole Bay Area. The numbers I gave were for the Bay Area not necessarily San Fran. These Areas outside San Fran have significantly lower cost of living. Higher than Oklahoma? Yes! But not as high as San Fran.

    Upper Midwest, I'll be starting at $29.61 in med-surg float. I think there's a shift differential for nights but I'm not sure.

    Florida pays crap. It's low 20s for new grads in the hospital. Don't know about hospice ltc etc.

    Mid- Tennessee

    36000 a year is typical. State Facilities may pay more and VA is around 46000.
