Why are new grads having a hard time finding jobs?
We recently emerged from a very deep recession.
Healthcare is not immune to the same hiring jitters that affects every other industry.
Preceptor/internships, training new grads is much more expensive than hiring a skilled and experienced nurse

- Aug 30, '11 by ad1028I work in Chicago and new hires usually start off at 26/hr. This can change depending on the hospital, but most range from 24-28/hr. Hope this helps
- Sep 13, '11 by rjosbornIt really depends on your experience and the amount you ask for.
At my hospital, starting nurses usually make $26/hr after their 90-day probation period. I started at $28/hr because I came in with experience.
