Name the Hospital and Starting Salary

  1. 0
    Hello everyone. I thought it would be useful to start a thread about the hospitals in North Carolina and the salary requirements. Does anyone know the starting salary for Duke or Wake Forest Baptist Hospital for someone with a BSN. Feel free to post about other hospitals as well.

    I don't think most hospitals consider BSN vs ADN when setting the hourly rate. I've heard that Duke is now starting new grads out at $25/hour. I was surprised by that because they used to be the lowest paying hospital in that part of the state!

    Most are 20-22ish (in eastern NC, anyway) I didn't know Duke went up. Just applied there. The shift differentials are what you need to look at. WakeMed is like $17 weekend nights. I don't think anyone comes that close.

    I am in western nc @ a for profit hospital owned by tenet healthcare. Starting pay for new grad RNs regardless of ADN or BSN is $19 with a $3 shift diff. In previous years a BSN would earn an extra dollar on the hour but they have recently shut that down.

    According to our new grads our hospital starts them around $20 an hour with everyone earning $2.50 after 3pm and $3.50 day shift weekend plus the $2.50 after 3pm. I am in Greenville.
