Hello to all RNs in Ohio!
I'm a New Grad RN and it's been difficult to get an interview or job in Cleveland Clinic, UH, Metro Hospital. Two recruiters in Cleveland Clinic contacted me but they said they are going to forward my application to the hiring manager and it's been a month and I haven't heard from them.
Most of the hospitals want an experienced RN and it seems like no one wants to hire a new grad. I got a couple interview at Nursing homes and the rate for the other one is $23 for new grad. (when I talked with the recruiter at Cleveland clinic their rate is $25.25 even though the recruiter knows I'm a new grad. So $23 is kind of low knowing it's a LTC (which I heard pays more than hospitals, but I guess not..) Another interview from a nursing home wanted to hire me and the rate they want to give me is $21 because they said I'm a new grad. I don't even know if I should take this offer because it's the lowest I've heard for RN. This LTC doesn't even know if they want to hire me fulltime, which is what I need right now. How much is the minimum per hour for new grad RN in Cleveland, OH? So that I know which is acceptable and if I should take this offer?
I hope someone replies. thanks!
