I am a new grad (bsn) and will be getting a formal offer from dmc in a few days. I wanted to know what should I be expecting and if as a new RN I could negotiate better pay with HR? I have been told that dmc pays the lowest in the area! Thanks and good luck.
The DMC starts at 23.46 for a new graduate. I just got an offer from there but since i worked as a nurse tech my pay is higher.
I know St Johns pays like 25.50 or so.
Honestly I'm not sure you have much leverage with them having the pick of so many jobless new grads.

Absolutely! Sorry about that. I'm at the Medilodge of Sterling Heights. I also heard that Clinton Aire is hiring, I believe they're located on 17 mile road, not sure of the cross streets. I applied for Medilodge on Craigslist believe it or not and they called me a week later. You can also walk in and fill out an application. Nursing homes seem to be hungry for RN's. They have a lot of LPN's employed there. Good luck!
