Please answer my question....it's for school!

  1. Hi everyone! I am a senior at Hoover High School in Hoover, Alabama. I am taking a class that is called On Your Own and it basically teaches you how to live on your own when you graduate from high school. We are doing a project that is worth a bunch of points and we are asked to find the starting salary of our future career. I would like to pursue a career in neonatal nursing when I graduate from high school. So the question that I am asking is, can anyone tell me what the starting salary would be for a neonatal nursing in the state of Alabama? Thank you for your time.

    Starting salaries can vary widely from city to city within a state and from hospital to hospital. It may be unlikely to have an entry level position in neonatal nursing without some other OB nursing experience - again, it depends on if you're talking about newborn nursery, or Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) and what level NICU you're talking about. Go to www.salary.com. That's your best source for averages for a given profession, though it doesn't address specialties within the nursing profession.

    You need to ckech with your State Nurses Assoc. also. Starting salaries vary greatly, as a MAy 2000 RN graduate, I know. Take care and good luck!
