For nursing students like myself, I thought it would be helpful and intersting to see what type of salary is out there for graduating nursing students for different area's. Looking around the site, I see different salary threads,...
I started out in Texas, new grad on an OB unit, at 22.00 an hour, plus 1.50 specialty pay and a 3 shift differential. After two years of OB, I moved to Colorado and make 22.00 with a 4 shift diff. Good luck
2011 LPN new grad with 2 yrs CNA experience $16.05/hr + 15% night differential - skilled rehab unit at VA (five 8's on nights)
2012 RN (ADN) new grad with above experience $23.15/hr + 1.50 nights + 1.50 weekends - med/surg at small community hospital (three 12's on nights)
Original offer for RN position was a lower base but was able to negotiate due to having leadership/management experience in previous career and a non-nursing degree.
