Tomorrow I start orientation at a local nursing home. I live in North Carolina and I'm a new grad with no experience. We will be discussing pay rates and I have no clue what the going rate for an RN in the nursing home is. If anyone has any knowledge on this please help me! I don't want to go in and get low balled because I don't know any better. I have a friend who said that RNs get paid more in the nursing home setting than in the hospital. I find this hard to believe, but I'm just trying to get an idea. Thanks!
