New Grad Rates for RN's
- 0Mar 13, '01 by JMPCan anyone help me establish what the current grad rates are for various states/provinces?
I would really appreciate it- any other input would be great too- such as how wage increases are handled.
I am interviewing soon for one state- the starting wage is $16.00? How does this stack up?

Here in Birmingham, depending on where you work, a new grad will start off with $15-$17 plus shift diff.

As a new grad in NC I initially got 15.76 and 16.26 at two different facilities. We have a much lower cost of living than CA.

You can ask at Human resources what bonuses are available...some places have sign on bonus's and some have one after two years...
