    I had two job offers as a new grad. The base was $26 for both facilities in Chicago, but they had different shift differentials.

    Why are new grads having a hard time finding jobs?

    We recently emerged from a very deep recession.

    Preceptor/internships, training new grads is much more expensive than hiring a skilled and experienced nurse

    I 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

    It 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.
