My husband and I will likely be moving to Savannah this fall, and I would like to know the average starting RN salary at the area hospitals. I would really appreciate any information anyone can provide, as I read all the salary threads on here and haven't found any information about Savannah salary range. I emailed HR at a couple of places and haven't heard back yet.
It really depends on whether I would make a salary that was worth it as to whether I go back to the hospital, at least until after the baby is born. If I wont be paid that well in the hospital, I will just do private duty because it is easy and low stress. In my opinon it isn't worth the extra stress for another $1 or $2 an hour I would make in the hospital. I would rather know sooner than later so I wont bother going thru the whole hiring process if I don't feel it is worth the effort. Also, it will help me know which hospital pays better, and I can narrow it down to 1 or 2 places to apply to.
I'm a fairly new RN graduate (December 07) and worked 2 years as an LPN prior to getting my RN (some places count it as experience. I will have worked 6 months in med/surg by the time we move. I hope to move to into OB (L&D or mother/baby). Thanks in advance for any info!
