    I'm not sure what area of Ohio you're looking for, but in the Columbus area starting salaries are around $19-$22/hr.

    Do you mind me asking what your hourly rate is now after almost 10 years? Also what kind of benefits package do most of the nurses have? vacation, etc...?

    New grads in Lima make $18-19 plus shift/weekend differencials. BSN puts an additional 75cents to a dollar over the ADN rate I have given.

    You know, I forgot to mention a little bit of precious info about the Cincinnati market. There is no BSN differential, and that sucks.

    Just thought I'd share...:angryfire

    I read these post and it is shocking. I am an LPN almost finished with my RN. I started out in 2003 as an LPN making 18.5 an hour with $1 extra an hour if I did not call in or show up late. That was 7 years ago as an LPN. I currently make $21.5 as an LPN. It is sad to think a BSN would get paid less than an LPN. It is also scarry to think that I will go to school and not make any more money for all my effort. I hope that is not the case.

    I want to say you will start around $22/hr in Columbus but if you work nights that could be as high as $26/hr. Work some weekends and it is even higher. I have never heard of a different rate for BSN, sounds Lima has it going on!

    Why should you get more $$ because you took more general education? ADN or BSN.... nursing knowledge is the same. You each passed an identical licensing exam. When I finish my ADN (already have BA), I'll be one class shy of a RN-BSN program. Why should I receive less money because I don't want to take "Cultural Diversity in The Profession??" My psychology degree taught me enough about cultural diversity.
