    New grad starting pay at Meriter Hospital in Madison Wisconsin is $27.70/hour, plus $4 NOC & $2/weekend. COL is very reasonable. Can buy a nice 3 bed, 2 bath house for <$100K.
    I am familiar with this area and there is no way you can buy a nice 3 bedroom, 2 bath house for less than $100,000. It would be tough buying one for less than $200,000. Also, property taxes are high, about $5,000/yr for a $250,000 house. You must be talking about the surrounding small towns when you are talking about a house price of $100,000

    I work at another hospital in Madison and new grads start at 24/hr plus 2$ and hour more if you work in a hospital versus a clinic. 3$ extra per hour for weekend hours and 2.5/hr extra for hours worked after 5pm.

    *** Yes I was talking about some of the small town around Madison. We sold our house in Saulk county (25 min drive to the hospital) in 2006 for under $100K. 1920 square feet, 3 br, 2 ba, 2 acres, 1 car garage. Plenty more around like it.

    I live in California. I think starting wage is 25-26 /hr. Not sure what it tops out at... I average 100 000 grandish and Im in the middle of the scale. Additional monetary incetives are given for an advanced degree, belonging to committees, doing research, recruiting nurses, and we have double overtime... Its nice. Keep in mind, cost of living is high in California..
    Hello,i'll be working in California soon.....My starting will be $25/hour.

    Unfortunately, I've found this to be pretty inaccurate.

    I am amazed at how low some of these wages are considering the cost of living. We are all making bout the same (new grad pay) yet, I live in a very affordable area.....just doesnt make sense.

    Georgia, new grad 20ish plus 5/weekend, 4.25/nights.

    Sorry pardon my frank statement, but dont read this forum if you are so against talking salary. This is an OPEN forum and most of us enjoy seeing what the national salary range is. It is NO secret.
    Relax, my statements are not meant to be negative, they're just my opinion. This is a discussion forum, I think.

    I am in the Philadelphia suburbs and as a nurse with only 2 years experience base is 26.00 hourly with 3.50 for noc diff, so 29.50. Grossed 64,000 this past year. Not too bad for being a newbie.
