    Impossible to say--it's not as if there's one standard pay rate for RN's statewide...

    I'm in the Northern part of the state. It does vary, but here most start out at about 19-21$/hr with 3.50 for nights, and 4.00 weekends. Your state run hospitals will be the lowest paying for the most part. Also area hospitals here pay anywhere from .25-1$/hr extra for certifications.

    Okay I'm an LPN, that's not much more than I make now. I hope I get paid 4 my LPN experience when I start working as an RN. I reside in BR too.

    Yes usually hospitals will consider your LPN experience as well. Good luck!

    I work in the ICU for a large private hospital. New grad base pay is $20 per hr. $24 for nights. $26 for weekend nights.

    My wife (RN) works for a state hospital in the same town. She makes almost $27 an hour weeknights and $29 weekend nights. She has two years LPN experience that does not contribute to her pay, although she does get critical care diff of 50 cents included in what I listed.
