    I work in Chicago and work ICU Registry for $40/hr + differential right now. I think full time base rate at my hospital is $26 or $27 for new grads and around $30 or so for most RNs.

    MSMITH, if you dont mind me asking, where do you work? I am a new grad living in the city but willing to travel to the burbs to work. It has been very difficult trying to find a nursing job here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    I live in East Central Illinois and my base pay is around $26, I have been an RN for 6 years but just started at this facility a year ago. I have excellent benefits, started out with 5 weeks of paid vacation per year and very nice/nurse pt ratios. Cost of living is very low! Think about it!

    Well my mom is an RN and she said she is making 36 or so per hour. I know its in the 30s, I will ask her when she gets home but she has been an RN since the late 70's, early 80s. A long time.

    Southern IL, $18.00/Hr. nights in Med/Surg. Nursing home- $16.00/Hr. Charge nurse, up to 60 patients with 3 CNA's.
    There are numerous posted ads for RN's. In the 60 or so applications that I have submitted, I've only had 2 interviews. Been looking for 6 months.

    I work at a downtown Chicago teaching hospital making $31/hour base, $5 differential for nites, and another $2/for weekends. This is with over 7 years of experience. Our hospital is one of the lowering paying hospitals, and i was told new grads $25-26/hr to start.
    Our ratio on day shift 1RN to 4-5 patients; nite shift 1RN to 5-6 patients. All rooms are private, each has their own computer for documentation of meds/assessment, and its a beautiful facility.
