How much do Nurses really make? - Page 4Register Today!
- Aug 8, '10 by Jessy_RNQuote from maddie567How many years experience and in what setting? FT, PT, PRN, per diem? Again, 40 bucks an hr for an RN without many yrs experience is steep even for CT.well, i am an LPN in Ct making 28/hr
I make a little over 40/hr presently in TX but I work PRN status. Not something realistic for a 'regular' FT nurse in this area.
- Aug 8, '10 by GtownhoyasDCIs it true that the pay in Southern States are generally worse than in other regions? I mean, 25-32 dollars an hour sounds great to me, I would take that in a heartbeat, but from the posts I've seen, it's seems like the pay's lower down south...
But, I really don't about what job I start out with in the nursing field. Any job in the nursing field is better than none, and as long as I have enough to pay back the loans and support myself, I'll be fine...
- Aug 8, '10 by TwinMommyX2In Albuquerque, NM starting salary $60,000/yr with a BSN and no experience. The shift differentials and overtime bring it up to the $80,000/yr range. Outpatient RN's make about 20% less, largely due to the lack of differentials and overtime.

- Aug 14, '10 by gachelleIn southern GA, hospital-based new grads RN's start out between $19.00-21.00 an hour depending on your facility. LPN's start out at $12.00-$15.00 an hour. Shift diff helps out it you work nights and weekends.
Some hospitals allow unlimited overtime which, if you're willing to put in the hours help out the check quite a bit. And of course the cost of living down here is nothing compared to the metro areas. A fantastic house with acreage costs about 1/4 of what a house with less sq. footage costs further north.
- Nov 30, '11 by CT2MdQuote from Jessy_RNLPN's in CT do not make $29 an hour that the startingI graduated from a CT school in 2007. I was offered 25/hr at the time. Many of my classmates three years later only make about 30/hr so unless you have lots of experience, 40/hr is exaggerated, imho.
rate for RN at some of the higher paying hospitals...RN's with 15 +yrs
Of experience is bearly making $40/hr. Most hospitals in CT no longer hire
LPN, they are also forcing the ASN nurses to go back to school. The state has even
Close down their LPN program.
- Aug 17, '12 by Taxminia0311LPN in Ct do nottt make $40hr they start out at $18hr and R.N's make anywhere from $26 to $27 hr so please stop fibbing, I should know I just move out of Merident, Ct to Lorain, Ohio. my son's godmother sister is LPN and her girlfriend just graduate about the time I moved out and she's making 26.00 hr at a hospital. so as for Jessy_R.N she is say the truth about everything including about the state shutting down thier LPN program cause right about that time my wife was excepted into the Surgical Tech program which the same school, but we had moved when she got excepted.
- Aug 29, '12 by samb0105I live in northeast tennessee and its so crazy to see all these different salaries. A hospital position for an RN with 13 months expereince pays $18.11. In LTC you can make around $23-24 as an RN.
