How much do NY nurses make?
- 0Jan 25, '05 by Michele G.Hello,
I am new to the forum. I just moved back up to NY from Orlando Florida. I am an experienced RN-C (over 2 years). I have an ASN degree. In Florida I started at $17.05/hr as a GN in 2002, and was making $18.75/hr base before I moved. I was working the night shifts - 7pm-7am, and every other weekends. In Florida, we got between 15-33% more for differentials for nights and weekends and a little higher for holidays. My salary did include benefits and 401K, ect. I made a total of $41,000 last year working the night shift. I currently live in Long Island, Nassau county, and was wondering if anyone can tell me how much I will make working in one of the local hospitals in Nassau county? How much an hour? how much are the night differentials? How much a year? I am hoping to work for one of the North Shore hospitals, hopefully on a post surgical womens unit (if they have a unit like that, or mother baby), which is where I worked in Florida. I was also wondering how do the night differentials work, are they a % of what you make or do they give you more/hr? Any help will be greatly aprreciated. Thanks.

Some of them hire only Bachelor degree RNs...NYU, Sloan-Kettering, Mt. Sinai.etc...I think they would hire exp. Rns with associate only if they are in school for attaining a bachelor's degree. Contact them for accuracy.
- 0Mar 5, '05 by casper1Thats pretty much the base rate for new grads in my area. You do get shift differential. I don't think it is as high as you are presently recieving. Where I work we get $1.75 for evening $2.00 for nights on weekends the shift is $3.00 for nights.
Some hospitals offer nice sign on bonus.
The cost of living is lower. You can buy a beautiful home in a excellent area
for $150,000. A lot cheaper than NYC.
- 0May 22, '05 by HexQuote from Ari RNThat is great news! :hatparty:In NYC, new grads (ASN) (no experience what-so-ever) make $60,000 - $62,000. ($30.00/hr)! With no shift differential. Yippee!
I have a related question for you guys: 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?
I ask because I always wanted to live and experience the City, even if it's for only a year or two.
I'm from FL btw.
