    I can tell you starting wages in STL for new grads (I assume they are not dissimilar to KC). Christian Hospital: $19.50. Barnes-Jewish (Big Barnes): $20.80. SSM (all hospitals): $21.00.

    I was told that Christian started off at $20.80 as well. $19.50 wouldn't be much more than Im making as a tech.

    It could be $20.80, it would make sense to have all BJC facilities paying the same. The amounts I quoted above I got from colleagues who graduated with me in August and were hired at those locations. I agree $19.50, even $21.00, is too low, way too low for an RN. We should start @ $25.00 and go to $30.00 after the first year.

    BJC nurses max out at $40/hr (nonexempt employees) from my understanding. The cost of living isn't such that we need to start out at $25. My starting rate of $20.90 with two small raises since has been plenty to pay back my loans easily, and recently purchase a house. $30/hr after the first year would be awesome and all but...

    I graduated June 2013, my start pay was similar to posted above. But I got lucky to score a weekend option position during days which is $10 more plus evening differential and weekend differential. Not bad for a new grad?
