Recent RN openings for the evening shift at a local (Phila suburbs) county-run facility stated referenced starting pay of $24/hr. The posting also stated that 2-3 years of LTC experience was required and that they would not consider new grads lacking such experience. Pay at the private nursing home where I did my LTC rotations was a bit higher than that (in the $29/hr range) but they too hire only experienced RNs.
Depends on the area, the organization, and the pay structure. As the DNS, I'm salaried management, and I pull down a hair under $60K per year, which is good pay in my neck of the woods. But I had to go to the city to get it; I've earned as little as $38K/yr. in smaller community ALFs under pretty much the same working conditions. So I feel pretty fortunate indeed.
