    So these starting salary is for new grads in orientation right? How much do you guys make after your off orientation? What is the norm after 1 year, 5 years, etc... Assuming you get all the normal certification (ACLS, PALS, etc). I guess what I'm asking where and when do you plateau?

    How can one prevent this from happening? I know getting a masters degree is one answer anything else?

    Most hospitals in Maryland do not allow new grads to start orientation without having passed nclex. Therefore there is no pay raise after orientation. Pay raises used to be annually, however, with the economy many hospitals have decided not to give any raises and some have even cut pay differentials.

    Some hospitals pay more for nurses with certs such as ACLS, PALS, CCRN etc, some do not pay anything extra. As for plateauing out of pay raises with experience. It seems like a lot of hospitals only like to think you gain more knowledge for around 10 to 15 years. At this point if you are still a bedside nurse then no more raises, apart from the odd cost of living raises.

    I am not too sure why you think getting your masters will stop this from happening. A masters will let you get out of bedside nursing and get a different job with a different pay scale etc. If you stay with your masters, and I work with several, then it doesn't change anything.

    Two of the three hospitals in MD that I have worked for did hire what they call graduate nurses and started orienting them while they studied for NCLEX so they do get two different pay rates. I think the rates listed here are for actual new nurses not graduate nursing rates though.

    I just got an offer today from a traveling nurse company that are placing nurses at University of Maryland Medical Center in Blatimore for a whole lot less than what you guys have posted here. The hourly rate was $22.85 an hour. Of course I turned down the job! Just an FYI.

    In my experience the BSN gets you maybe $1 an hour more.
