OSU new grad pay

  1. 0
    SO I was in Columbus last night visiting some friends and I absolutely fell in love with the area. It has renewed my interest in applying to OSU medical center after I graduate in May. What is the starting pay at OSU? What is the differential? And does OSU offer weekend differential?

    I'm not sure how much they pay for new grads, but in 2012, they offered me a position in ICU for a little over $25/hr with a 4.75 night diff and 4.75 weekend diff. I had a year and a half of experience at the time. Thing is, OSU is a tough place to work right now, that's why I turned the offer down. They are mandating overtime, forcing RNs to work 16 hour shifts... You also have to pay out the nose for parking... I think I remember it being like $35 a month and you have to park far away in an uncovered lot and take a shuttle! You also have to pay union dues which aren't cheap, and obviously don't have an RN's best interest in mind if they're mandating left and right. I've worked all over Columbus and the best places for new grads in my opinion are Riverside, Grant, and Children's.

    Ahh I see. That is disappointing to hear. 16 hour shifts?? Man that is rough. To be honest Im not really a union guy so its probably not in my best interest to work there. It sounds like I am better off here in Cleveland at UH.

    Have you thought about any of the other hospitals? Mount Carmel? Ohio Health?

    Ive thought about Ohio Health. Do you know which hospitals of theirs you recommend working at? Any idea what new grads start at? Benny's?

    Riverside and Grant are part of Ohio health.... Worked for them for 2 years and enjoyed my experience. Don't work at Mt Carmel unless you're desperate.... They're known to seasoned nurses as a dangerous place to work...

    And for you to say "I'm not really a union guy," what's that based off of? Obviously never working as a nurse. Unions are GREAT when they fight for the benefit of the nurse and not for the healthcare system.

    Not off any personal experience but just from friends and family who have past work experience with unions.

    New grads starting at $24/hr. Thats pretty standard across all the central ohio hospitals with maybe $0.10 differences. Mt Carmel, ohio health, OSU. I do know OSU and Nationwide Children's are on hiring freezes right now for budget issues.
