    Ummm, I don't think anyone said anything about 9-15 for an RN (except the one). In addition, a lot of these posts were last year and even the year before that.

    I am currently in school, but my mom works at Methodist, and I will work there too when I am done with school. She makes just under 30 an hour as an RN. She has a masters though. I am a bit discouraged by what ive heard on this subject, i must say.

    Wow...my boyfriend and I were thinking of moving to Indiana. I now live and work in California. I guess I should get used to the idea that I will not make anywhere near what I make here. I have been an RN for 7years now and I make $31/hr here. The cost of living here is much higher though so I think that all in all it will work out fine. Just have to get use to it I guess

    I was told on Monday 6/5/06 by an HR recruter at a hospital in NW Indiana right on Lake Michigan about one hour from Chicago (hint, hint) that brand new grad RN's start at $21-23/hr before differentials.

    The cost of living here is decent. Maybe things are looking up in parts of Indiana.

    I'm in northeastern Indiana... New nurses fresh out of school start here at $17 and change. We top out at 29. If you're willing to drive a few extra minutes, just across the border in southern Michigan, most places are starting at $20+ with about the same top out. Someone was asking about office nurse pay... Offices that are part of our group pay between $11 and $16 regardless of LPN or RN.(The medical assistant scale is just $2 below that) I'm told that's actually pretty good pay for an office nurse around here.
