    I recently hired a new grad....$26.50 base pay plus shift and weekend dif.
    And to think, when I was a new grad, the best paying LTC around was paying $8.00/hour!! When I left there to work at the hospital, I made $10.47/hr on 3-11 and thought I had it made!

    I am a new grad and just accepted a position in a LTC facility in the Lehigh Valley, PA. I will be starting at $24/hr. The rates go up the closer you get to Philly.

    Pitiful...I'm ADON, nearly 25 years experience & I make $0.50 more than her. And I'm salary not hourly. It all depends on location.

    I got a call about a DON position in the Carolinas. The recruiter told me it was the 'best' salary she'd seen. The salary was $62,500. It all depends on location. And....we're all worth way more than we're paid, whatever it is.

    Its interesting to note the variants in wages. I think some of you should definitely be paid more. I never bothered discussing pay, because I figured it would be decent, and I was happy to have a job so quick. I am a new grad starting just under 34 dollars an hour in LTC. I would not work for anything under 28 dollars around here, since that is about the lowest rate that nurses get here.

    Hey nascar nurse just to give you an idea of what you would be worth here (Canada), my preceptor with 11 yrs exp made over 40 dollars an hour. It varies, but most facilities I have seen pay on avg 3O to 50 dollars an hour for RNs now. Those of you with exp would get from about 38 to 50 an hour. Or, the salary equivalent of this.

    It really really depends on location. Just because the pay is higher somewhere else doesn't mean you would be rolling in the dough- you'd be using all your extra money for the rent, etc.

    I am in Virginia and get paid 26.5 as a supervisor...although they quoted me 28 and I need to get that corrected. When I worked a cart for a short period last year I was getting paid 25. I am still considered "new grad" since I haven't worked a full year yet.

    Here in IA i was hired in March as a new RN at a LTC for $20/hr. Iowa is one of the lowest paying states for nursing though!

    Thank you for replying. Are you getting paid differentials for nights and weekends?
