    Starting salaries for new grads can vary widely depending on what part of the country you are in. Down south you may be lucky to start at $20/hr where as in urban areas or California you could be starting around $30/hr.

    Depends on which state. In AZ, new grads start at around low to mid $20s. If you want to boost it up a bit, you can do nights for the night shift differential. Some hospitals offer a weekend differential too.

    $17.75 base + $1 for BSN + $3.05 for night shift differential. So I'm making $21.80 as a new grad on a mother-baby unit in Missouri.
