New Grad Rates for RN's

  1. 0 Can 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?

    Thanks

    I live in a town in Kansas with approx 20,000 people. I have been told that new grads start at $14.43 plus diff. It may be a little more in the bigger cites (Wichita, Kansas City, etc)

    Remember money isn't anything. The hospitals that are hiring you will offer you the new grad rate- I don't think any place will try to cheat you. But remember that a little extra cash may not be worth it if you don't get a good orientation and have a nice place to work.
    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.

    I am a nwe grad in Ontario, and I make 20.50 an hr. pluse weekend, shift premiums. I noticed you are from Ontario also. If you go to the CNA web site and click on facts, on the right hand side, you can get a list of provences and min/max rates for hospitals.
    You can ask at Human resources what bonuses are available...some places have sign on bonus's and some have one after two years...

    keep in mind that the salary you make in each state will vary based upon the cost of living. Here in Southern California a new grad starts at $19 plus shift diff.

    Dear JMP,

    I live in Houston, Tx. Here it depends on whether you work in the Texas Medical Center or the outlying hospitals.

    In the med center, most of the hospitals are starting new grads at $20/hr +diffs +4 week vac. Of course, few people live really near there, parking is expensive (even with hospital subsidies).

    Personally, I am interviewing at some of the outlying hospitals in the suburbs. Salaries there start at around $17 +diffs. I figure, the shorter commute, not fighting traffic, and free parking is worth it. Plus, remember it is only starting. Eventually it will even out.
