    I guess that LTC institution that I quoted pays under the average, huh? I tried asking if it's negotiable but they responded that it's a fixed rate.

    From my experience: (All RN)

    AREA: Northern IN
    Field: LTC
    Base rate: 18.25 for FT, 23.00 for PRN

    And at a local hospital, they start nurses out around $17 (some lower, some higher) and the pay increases for PRN based on a tier schedule. So $8 more an hour if a PRN works 3 shifts per two week schedule, or $10 more an hour for 4 shifts per a 2 week schedule.

    Community health Indianapolis does this:

    For new graduates working non resource & non PRN positions

    RN: $22/hr base, $3.75 evening shift diff after 3pm, approximately 15%-20% more for nights after 11pm, and finally 20% more for weekend pay. CLO/weekend option RNs earn the same but make 40% more on weekends instead of 20%

    LPN/Medic: 14.69/hr base, $2.50 shift diff after 3pm, $3.25 for nights, 20% more for weekends. No special incentives for weekend options other than the basics

    Student Nurse: $13.00 base, with LPN/Medic diffs.

    PST/PSP : $9.75/hr. unknown shift diffs
