    When days/nights. how much experience you have stuff like that. As a new grad I've had offers starting at $60,000/yr and as much as $68,000/year. If you break it down to hourly it ends up being $45/hr to $55/hr. that's what I've seen
    I won't graduate until June of next year with an associates. (Counting down the days!) I plan to stay in Brooklyn or Queens. I hate commuting by subway. Were your offers from hospitals in Manhattan? I'm sure they are offering more than the other boroughs.

    Hi I am in upstate ny at a state facility, the state pays terrible compared to private, so for all you're aggravation you'd be better off not working for the state of ny, UNLESS benefits are what you are looking for....there are location differentials, so if you live down state you make more than upstate. I would have gotten my bachelors instead of my associates, because, it opens more doors everwhere, i encourage you to keep going, and find something that you are passionate about doing in nursing, it is much more than bedside nursing, we are no longer florence nightengales, who were subserviant, we are strong and in charge more than we ever have been..good luck

    If you are really interested in Living in NY city but not sure if you will like it - try travel nursing. It is a great opportunity to try things without the long term committment, usually just 3 months. They will put you up in an apartment in the city and give you an hourly. I don';t know what the going rate is but I know it will be more than 20 including an apt.
    I agree!!! That is the best way to see if NYC is where you really want to stay.

    Answer is NO. Sorry. That's the catch. Living in NYC or near to it, is among the highest cost of livings in the world. People commute for 2 hours or more from all around the area, even from Connecticut and New Jersey, because of it. If you are willing to do a roomate thing, with a search firm that matches you, its riskier business but possibly do-able.

    Oops, my above reply was for 'Hex': "Can a recent grad (with that kind of salary) afford to rent a nice 1 bed apartment in Manhattan, along with all other living expenses?"

    Some nursing friends have just graduated this June with an ASN. One has already been offered a job at Sloan Kettering. 12 hour day shift. 62 K. She will have another nurse shadow her for the first 3 months. They choose the floor she works on the first year, afterwards she can choose.

    I can't wait until I graduate this December!!

    Update: During the initial interview she was told 62K. When she was called back they offered her 66K. She accepted the job and will start in October!

    Hhhmm, as a BSN grad, Sloan-Kettering said the starting salary is $65,254 plus 10% for nights..They specifically said there is NO BSN differential, so I'm wondering why they told your ASN friends 62? The Recruiter there is only part-time and not even a Sloan employee (and not a nurse)...she also said Sloan makes NO contribution to the employee pension, which---if true---would seem to put Sloan at a competitive disadvantage with the NYC-owned and private hospitals, which I believe do make pension contributions---NYU, Mt Sinai, Lenox Hill.....Can anyone confirm this???

    depending on what part of manhattan you live, rent for a studio can be 1500-2000, and you can go upwards from there. you need to add utilities, ie. electricity and gas for cooking, landline telephone if you choose. I hope this helps.

    I currently work in a NYC hospital.... our pay is appriximately $32/hr for full time, $44 for per diem. There are slight differences with full time pay based on your years of experience and education. You have to remember that approximately 38% is taken out in taxes, especially if you live in NYC. If you live in any of the 5 boroughs, you get city tax taken out of each check as well as your state and federal. Rent varies depending on the size of the apt, area you are living with, and if you are living alone. But if you don't want rats or roaches, want to live on your own in a neighborhood you feel safe walking in at midnight... then you are definately looking at $1500 -$2500 a month, not including utilities, a doorman, or an elevator. As far as pension plans... that's sort of a laugh at most hospitals in NYC. You need to work in my hospital for 5 years before you're even vested. Even if you live in NJ or CT to save money on rent, you need a car and the cost of gas and tolls to get into the city make up the difference. Plus, you have to deal with the morning commute and traffic. Don't get me wrong... I love NYC and my hospital.... but if you're looking to move b/c of the higher salaries, don't.
