    SELU - I have a cousin who started out at $19 - something an hour at STPH in Covington about 3 years ago. She said she quickly moved up within a year to around $22.00 an hour.

    I don't think it is inappropriate at all, lol. Here, the hospitals are paying about 22/hour for new grads. With sign on bonuses. Also, they pay 1.00/hr for evenings and 2.00/hr nights. My hospital offers premium pay for shifts you pick up that is 4.00/hr extra on weekdays and 8.00/hr on weekends and holidays.

    New Grad, RN in Staten Island New York (it is 1 of the 5 borrows that make up New York City) I started at 33.80/hr...after a year I went up to 34.82/hr....the other States pay way less and in my opinion, I still don't get paid enough for the stress, both physically and mentally...nursing school could not prepare you for what you will have to deal with....
