What is the Nurse salary in the NY area

  1. 0 I know this can be a taboo subject but I just want to know on average how much nurses make an hour. Preferably how much would it cost for a new grad after taxes and is single. Private hospitals and public hospitals. Thanks

    Moved to New York Nursing where you should get more input from some of our NY nurses. You might also want to read through some of the other threads in this forum.

    I'm still a student, but I have several friends working in city hospitals(Bellevue, Woodhull, Elmhurst) and they start mid 60's. I don't know the exact details of benefits, but I do know that they offer great benefits.

    Working for the city hospitals you start 64/65k but have great benefits. Hey it's the city. Private hospitals (NYP, mt Sinai) start you 70-74k)

    How did you get into NYP? Is it the New grad residency program? I didnt have any externship experience during nursing school but I had a 3.7GPA...Do you think they will still accept me? What were your qualifications?

    I've always been clueless when it comes to salaries. An hourly wage is easy to calculate, but I have no idea how a salary works. What about holidays, overtime and things like that?

    There are many moving parts to wages/compensation that make it hard to give a certain answer, but generally:

    First much depends if one is paid via the hour (usually employees who clock in and out) versus management and above who in theory are paid a flat wage regardless of how many hours they work which usually means no overtime as well.

    Full time salaried workers are usually paid for 40 hours per week but only work 35 in theory because of paid meal breaks. However some places do not pay for meal time and thus one "clocks out" for breaks/meals and then "clocks in" again afterwards. This would be in addition to the normal signing in and out at the start and end of each work day.

    Sick Days, Vacation, and Personal Days:

    Again these can be paid or not depending upon the terms of one's employment.

    If they are paid then your wages per year include "X" amount of hours/days off for the various personal reasons outlined above. However those without paid time off will see any days or hours missed from work deducted from their wages. So yes, you might get two weeks off with the latter but you aren't going to be paid for the time.

    In theory by federal and most local labour laws working through time one is supposed to be given off (such as paid meal breaks) is a no-no, but many nurses and others do anyway. However singing a time sheet or some such saying you took said period off when you didn't can cause all sorts of problems. In addition such actions are actually costing *you* money but saving the facility costs. If they do not have to arrange coverage and or otherwise obtain labour from you during a period when in theory you are supposed not to be working, you have *given* your employer five or whatever hours per week of labour out of your pocket.
