- 0Apr 17, '10 by jhowannaRNI just started my job in an LTC facility here in LI, NY. Since our facility is under a union i was offered $30/hr for 3 mos that I am under probation. After 3 mos my salary will increase to $34 and after a year it will be $35. Not bad! as a new nurse. They also pay differentials and over time and we get paid every week which is what I love!
- 0Jul 16, '10 by MicsterRNI just got hired at a LTC/Rehab facility in Terre Haute, IN. I was slightly disappointed with $18/hr, but I have no leverage. (Just graduated). I spoke professionally and politely with the exec director and asked if my bachelor's degree in business or 1.5 yrs experience as a CNA were considered when calculating my rate. He'll have to, "Get back to me."
Another new grad - RN got a job in LTC/Rehab in Greencastle, IN, and she got $20/hr. My cousin who works LTC/Rehab in Sacramento is at $33/hr. I guess it's all geography!!! And Terre Haute is the bottom of the barrel! )
- 0Jul 18, '10 by RescueNinjaAfter reading this I am glad that almost all facilities in my area are covered by our provincial union that sets the salary across the province. I will start as a new grad RN in LTC at $29.36 hr base pay + 13-14% in lieu of benefits + 4% vacation pay + shift premiums. Granted I live in an area of the province where the cost-of-living is relatively low, but if I lived in a bigger city I'm sure I'd be wishing for more too.Last edit by RescueNinja on Jul 18, '10 : Reason: Oops - old post, sorry for bumping!
- 0Jul 22, '10 by missy--kayQuote from robinhikerI also work in CO and make 22/hr base and 2.75/hr incentive for nights... This is in a LTC facility.I just started as a new grad in Colorado and the pay is $26/hr base pay and $27/hr for nights. I have heard of other new grads at other facilities getting $30/hr.
- 0Aug 24, '10 by Joe33Just got hired in Seattle, WA for $24.50/hr + $1.50/hr per diem (RN, BSN). They pay LPNs a bit less. The ratio is only 17-20 pts per nurse, 8 pts per CNA, so I am loving it and feeling like I am getting the hang of it after only 4 days orientation (I still have about 2 1/2 weeks of orientation left). Nurses are treated pretty well here but the load is much less than even a few blocks from here where I hear it is 30 pts per nurse (all medicare so extra charting), 10 pts per CNA, and the pay is a bit higher.
