- Feb 4 by dudethemanThe Avg. Salary for an RN in NJ is roughly $37.00 per hour or 76k per year according to Salary.com and the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. I would say the avg. starting salary is probably around $30.00 per hour. The highest salaries I've seen is about $45-50 per hour but that comes with many years of experience in some sort of specialty position like ICU or some sort of leadership or management position like a charge nurse or nurse manager. Also keep in mind due to the economic recession, hiring practices are becoming stricter thus employers may take advantage and offer you less of an expected wage like $22-25 per hour.Last edit by dudetheman on Feb 4
- Feb 13 by meganmc02because i had girls i graduated with make crap money where they were hired (we all have BSNs), and i refused to take a job at $20-21/hr in a hospital with my bachelor's degree, my goal was $25/hr. i didn't negotiate and was hired at just over $27/hr and i also have a $3.50 shift differential on top of that. if i had negotiated i may have been able to get a little more, but i was just taken aback at the amount so i didn't negotiate, and was happy with what they offered me. on top of that we are the lowest paying hospital in south jersey...imagine if i had gone elsewhere.
- Apr 3 by debsgreysI work in south jersey, I always thought the hospitals in the area all made about the same. Interesting meganmc02 mmm got me thinking....
- Apr 4 by CloverySouth jersey is about $26 - $30 per hour base pay. I don't think a new grad with no experience can negotiate much... You're lucky to get an interview, let alone a job offer.
- May 9 by heron21As a new grad with BSN, I was offered $29/hr for days (plus $2/hr for weekends) in December 2012. There is no negotiation when you're a new grad here. I was VERY lucky and happy to have been offered so I took it without resistance. This is in Middlesex county at an acute care hospital. This was also not a residency program; however I was given 8 weeks with preceptor on the floor, plus 2 weeks in classroom including an IV course.
