Just wondering what the average nursing home salary for an RN is in the Boston area. I'm a new grad having a hard time finding a job and thinking about starting to apply to nursing homes in the area.<br>Thanks for any help!
I second Esme...LTAC will give you great experience! I just started at one a few weeks ago and already I've learned a ton.
Nursing homes in this area don't pay much...I was quoted by two within 10 miles of Boston...between $23 and $24 an hour for a new grad ASN. My fellow new hires who had BSN made 50 cents more in some cases.
We start new grads out at $24-25. With experience and shift diff, the staff nurses are making closer to $30.I can't find enough experienced nurses to work. I love new grads but I can't have a whole building full of them.
