Relocating to Columbus, Ohio, average pay to expect?

  1. I'm relocating to Ohio from South Carolina in a few months, and I'm unsure of what to put on the job applications I'm filling out in the "minimum required pay" box. Can anyone give me an idea of what a nurse makes in Columbus with 4+ years inpatient hospital experience, so I can ask for a reasonable wage? So far I'm working on applications for OSU and OhioHealth. Thanks very much!

    Can't answer for OSU, but at OhioHealth, you could expect between 25.00 - 30.00 hourly with that level of experience. They do offer shift differential if you are willing to work nights. They also pay a differential for weekend shift. ( right around 5.00 extra an hour on Sat. and Sun.)

    Great, that's super helpful! Do you think it's a good idea to put a range, like 26-29/hr or something? I was thinking also about putting just a happy medium of 27 haha. That's great that they do shift differential as well! I can definitely work weekends but I've been on nights since I became a nurse and I'm trying to get back to the daytime

    I think the range would be OK.. Come to think of it, I don't think that there is a spot on the OhioHealth online application to put an expected / desired salary in. (But it's been a couple of years, so I could be wrong...).

    Ok cool! Maybe it's a new question? It doesn't look like it's a required one per se, but I've heard it doesn't look good to leave it blank, so maybe I'll try the range. Thank you for your help!

    yea........use 27.00-30.00 hourly. with the years of experience you have that sounds about right.

    Dont foget about appying to Mount Carmel Hospital network as well here in columbus. And please please please....keep in mind, you are going to hear good and bad about all the hospitals here in this area, just take it at face value. its all about how you feel about the hospital and the floor you are working on.

    good luck to you!!!
