    I am not sure who gave you this info, but I interviewed for a position several months ago at UMMC as a new grad and the base pay was lower than that....unless you get more for having a BSN. But it was more in the 26$/range and then you have to pay for parking which is not cheap. I still probably would have taken it if they had offered, but the unit was actually very old and very few private rooms. They also were still doing paper charting but were supposed to be transitioning to EMR, which was very surprising since they have such a good reputation!

    Rockville has great schools. Probably one of the more expensive areas to live in Maryland.

    Sorry if this is redundant or anything, but does anyone have updated salaries for a new grad in MD? I'm also in AZ, looking at possibly moving to MD because the hubs is going to grad school online through Georgetown and wants to work on getting a job out there and go to school in person. I'm currently working as a new grad here in AZ getting a base pay of 27.24/hour and I'm hoping there is somewhere out there that's comparible, though I'm sure MD has a higher cost of living than AZ....

    Graduating in May but have begun looking at possible places to work. UMMC still starts off with 28 and some change. Overtime pay is killer there if you work several OT shifts in a specific period of time.
    Hopkins is salaried as mentioned before and starts PACE nurses off at about 61k (includes nights, holidays, weekends), and now they offer a 15k bonus (paid out over 3 yrs) for having a BSN. 7,500 if you have an ADN. So with a BSN you'll get about 66k for the first three years. Not sure if you have to stay on the same unit or not but I do know you have to pay it back if you don't stay. Not sure how much though.

    GBMC I believe starts you off at 25 ish.

    Thank you for this information! I have been trying to find any online New Grad information for Med Star Union Memorial Hospital for this coming year but nothing shows up regarding Nurse Residency Programs. Do you know if they have one and where I may be able to find that information?

    I have asked a number of friends whom all just got new grad nursing jobs at area hospitals and the results are:
    UMMC: $28.50/hr + differential for nights and weekends
    Frankling Square: $26.50/hr + differential
    AAMC: $27.50/hr + differential
    Hopkins: $60k/yr (no differential, but they have "high needs" pay which can be more than $50/hr)
    NIH: $32/hr

    The differentials are all different percentages and make each hospital equivalent to around $60k/yr. Keep in mind that in Maryland cost of living expenses are significantly different as you get closer to DC. A townhouse in a good school district only 1 hr. from DC will cost close to $400k...2 hrs. from DC, the same house would only cost $300K...very close to DC, the same house will be closer to $500-$600K.

    I think the pay compared to the cost of living is very low in this state. Housing costs in this area will cost your $1000 plus without utilities. Childcare is also very expensive.

    Been a nurse for ~2 years with and still don't make any of these salaries I think if we don't get some pretty significant raises this year, it's time to look for other options.
