    When I separated from the military back in 1994, I lived in Las Vegas, Nevada. I started work in a Internal Medicine clinic at $ 14.00 per/hr, benefit package extra. A year later, moved to Southern California providing Home Health for medically fragile and technology dependent infants and children, that pay maxed out at $ 18.00 per/hr...benefits were mediocre. Finally, after finding a company that hires LVN's to do Case Management...the pay is
    $ 33.85 per/hr...Annually, that is $ 65,000. I have 18 months experience in Case Management, but 21 years as a LVN. And yes...California has a high cost of living just like New York.

    This is an eye awaking discussion. I started as an LPN in 1982 at 6.10/hr. I quit hairdressing at an average of 10.00 /hr. the hours were better and the insurance better. After 25 years of nursing, 18 years as an RN. I make close to the salary of starting nurses. Experiece at this time does not count for much. 3 % raises does not cover gas and cost of living. New grads at a hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio start at around 20/hr. and I have to teach them everything I have learned over 25 years in the 6 weeks orientation time. UGH! I wonder if I should go back to school for chef training. What is the salary of the teachers in nursing schools? I here they have a shortage.

    wow..I may turn down that hospital job I was "technically" hired for after reading all the pay rates....I thought I was getting a good deal... I am also going to do some home care on the side as well as a hospital job. I saw 29.00/hr & almost cried after seeing my piddly 21.74/22.82/hr start pay........Maybe I will go to Boston......B&W pays $29.31/hr to start and the highest pay scale is $60.98/hr........none of this includes diff or anything....gee I feel like I was ripped off by the offer of the hospital I was going to go work at.....

    Colorado starting salary for new grad around $21/hr I don't know how great that is considering Denver is ranked 8th in the nation for cost of living.

    Unfortunately, I've found this to be pretty inaccurate.
    I found it to be right on target

    Newton, NJ $25 and hour days and $28 nights for grad nurses.

    Morristown, NJ $29 days and $32 nights

    I called and asked what these hospitals were paying first year grads before accepting a work scholarship. I got my tuition paid for a 2 year work contract.

    Forget standard of living if your single, live a student life for a few years working in the higest payed city for RNs, save to buy a house !

    then move to a lower standard of living location.

    So SF BAY area pays the most it seems? It can't possibly be 36 to 40 an hour for new grads is it? someone please clarify.
