    Where I am outside of Baltimore new grad rate at my hospital is $24.58/hr + $3 diff for nights + $3 diff for weekends.

    I am working mainly weekend nights so I will be at almost $31/hr

    Charleston, WV area here. I'm in a scholarship program sponsored by our local hospital system (4 hospitals) where they pay for my schooling and upon graduation, I'm under contract to work for them for 3 years. The starting pay right now is $18.00 per hour, but I've heard a rumor that they are about to raise the pay to be more competitive with other regional hospitals.

    Here in Northern California (near Sacramento) you can get between $20 - $26 for LVN. RN's clearly make between $38-$42 an hour. If not more. Depends on specialty and experience. Good luck!!
    really? Salary.com has RN's making btw 56k and 64k in sacramento...38/hr equals 72k...

    Good!!! I couldn't believe that was all the entry level pay was when I looked at their website. I hope they have that all into place when I graduate in May '09!
