All I know are starting RN rates with no XP. Parkview Health (Eight hospitals in northeastern Indiana) starts at $17.87 an hour base rate. As far as I know they still do bonuses and such. They are non-profit and have a huge regional medical center opening spring 2012.
Lutheran Health System (St. Joe, Dupont, Lutheran, etc) starts at $16.50 an hour base rate. They don't do bonuses anymore, and they are currently owned by CHS.
Each system has pluses and minuses. Lutheran is more popular OB wise (Dupont), has regional NICU (Lutheran), burn center (St Joe), children's hospital (Lutheran), and as far as I know the only perinatologist (Dupont) and pediatric surgeon (Lutheran) in Fort Wayne.
Parkview, being non-profit, isn't as worried as CHS about units being fiscally responsible. They worry more about customer service (Although Dupont is also customer service oriented and a very good place to work). They will probably remain Parkview owned while I've heard CHS is trying to sell Lutheran Health Network. Parkview Regional Center is gonna be the newest provider for northeastern Indiana.
Good luck on your job search
. Hopefully you have job XP because Fort Wayne has way too many nursing schools
. It took me about eight months to get my first RN job. That is why our starting rate of pay is so low.
