hello all. just readin different threads and wonderin what does the starting salary look like for a grad nurse? i live the in Atlanta area so any ball park figure will do. thanks!
I live in Ohio. I just started the interview process and so far I've been offered 22/hour plus benefits up to 26/hour plus benefits. I'm taking the latter one, plus they said they'd pay off my school loans!!
I'm starting at $30/hr here in Southern California. It really depends on the hospital and shift you choose to work. I've was also offered a new grad position starting at $23/hr, but obviously chose to go for $30 !
NC starts around 18-20/hr, plus shift and weekend diff. Plus benefits and a meek sign-on bonus (for 18 months committment). However, the cost of living here is cheap ($600 a NICE two bedroom apt), so it evens out to those who are making 30/hr and paying $1200/month rent. -A

Where? When I lived in NC (7 1/2 years ago) it was $600 for a townhouse really close to Cape Fear Valley Medical Systems - but I've heard cost of living has gone way up. This was in Fayetteville. They seem to like to raise cost of living for us military. Lucky us - even when the pay is WAY low in that area. We would love to move back to NC someday soon, where is the cost of living so low?
