I am going to start my nursing program this fall and I was wanted to know how much rn's get paid in dayton area And are there jobs available here because i have heard that there is a job freeze going on and in dayton area there aren't any jobs available. I know i am not a nurse right now and in 2 years it will get better but i just wanted to know what should i expect in future. If anybody can give me any info i will appreciate that.

I've heard that new grad RNs start somewhere around $22/hr. Two years ago, a rep from Miami Valley told our nursing class that the starting wage was $20.85/hr, so 22 sounds like it's in the right neighborhood for this area.

you might want to shop around, if you dont mind long term care alot of them are paying more than the hospitals. Around 25 and 26 dollars and hour then add shift diff if you work 2nd or 3rd.
