    This is funny. When I started in 1999 I was paid $16/hr.. I think the salaries sound appropriate for first year out and geographic area..

    Ahh, you guys will laugh...Starting pay for me is $18.28/hr, $3 for night differential and $3.50 for weekends. This is in TN, near Nashville. Not what I was expecting, but better than the zero money I am making now.

    $16 per hour in 1999 is the equivalent of about $21.50 per hour now, so you were doing pretty good, back then. But that doesn't take into consideration the fact that today's nurses might have $50,000 or even $100,000 worth of student debt. All that considered, many nurses today are starting jobs that pay maybe 1/2 or less of what you started at in 1999. If that's funny, I missed the punch line.

    I am an RN working at a home health agency in Los Angeles, CA and I would get a stipend per visit I had done and no mileage reimbursed unless it was a far drive around 1.5-2 hours away I would get double the stipend for that visit. Now I started working in the office as a RN Case Worker and I get $25/hr.
