    I'm in Columbus too. I think that quote is off...by a lot. 84K ,straight time, would be very near if not the top of the pay scale not the average. I'm at another hospital, 23 years experience, alphabet soup certs, I make 81kish. I'm very close to max and I am 100% positive our pay scale is higher than Ohio Health. They must be including benefits in that figure. Still not a bad salary either way.
    That is why I was wondering how they arrived at that "average" figure. OSU's pay is a little higher and isn't it like 44 dollars for top of the pay scale?
    84,000-- straight time, average pay-- just not buying it.

    The charge nurse from my floor at Grant Medical Center left while I was there and transferred to OSU. She had 15 years RN experience and said she had to take a $1 / hr pay cut.

    I think Cleveland's pay is very competitive compared to the rest of the state. It is not the best market for new grads, but if you a few years experience you can expect to find a job farely easy and make a salary of $50000 to $60000 with good benefits. Most places have plenty of overtime available, too. I recommend University Hospitals over the Clinic.The pay is the same, and they care for the staff a little more. Cleveland's cost of living is very affordable and you can get a STEAL on a home here! Good luck!

    And that is exactly why I wouldn't work for Cleveland Clinic or have ay participation with that hospital, they are always making errors when it comes to hiring their staff. just recetly they had an open house for new R.N's it obivouse that they can't keep thier nursing staff.
