Oh sorry. I meant what's the starting salaries for registered nurses (not APN's just RN's) at Mass General because I heard it's 100k, which seems very high to me. I'm currently a junior nursing student (BSN) and thinking about working there in the future.
From the last I heard, base rate was 27ish an hour, and diffs were really good. I think it was 5 for evenings, 7 for nights, and an extra 4 dollars an hour added when working weekend evenings and nights. I had wanted to work there too after I graduated but unfortunately couldn't get anything at the time.
I heard the salary at MGH is not so great when compared to other Boston hospitals. Don't forget to factor in parking, transportation, and other logistics. However, you go to MGH for the experience. Good luck.
For new grads it's $27.75 base pay. The diffs are $5 for eves and $7 for nights. The weekend diff is $4 extra for all shifts. However, if you commit to every other weekend, it's an extra $4 making it $8/hr. Different floors have different weekend requirements. Some require any three weekend shifts per schedule. Others do every third weekend. That's why there's the extra $4 on top of the $4 weekend diff if someone commits to every other weekend. People choose the extra money over less weekend flexibility.
Thanks for the response everyone. It sounds really appealing except for the parking thing . But getting good experience as a new nurse would be worth it. Of my professors that have worked at MGH, all have nothing but good things to say about it!
I wouldn't worry too much about the parking. It really isn't that bad and MGH is a great hospital to work for. Thousands of employees get to MGH everyday. They either live near a T station or they drive their cars to a T station, park there, and take the T in. MGH is walking distance from the Charles/ MGH stop on the redline and North Station on the green/orange/commuter rail. You can get a discounted Charlie card (T pass) though MGH. Parking on campus is free on nights and weekends.
I don't really see what other "logistics" would have to be factored in that would be different if you worked at another hospital?
