Depends on where you plan to work. Childrens starts at 22$/hr. Riverside and OSU are about the same. Can't say for Mt Carmel and St Anns, but no matter where you go, I think starting is about 22-25$hr. (typical for large city work)
[quote=IampattyRN;2802145]thats pretty much the pay here in FL.
but let me ask you,
how is the cost of living?
The cost of living in Columbus is pretty low. I have lived in several big cities before (D.C. and Baltimore) and it is a LOT lower than there. Housing is very reasonable and I understand it to be lower than in Florida (from what I know from friends who live down there). We do have a higher tax liability than many states, so that adds up...but I think we have a good cost of living situation here.
My wife is from Columbus, and I'm in nursing school, about to graduate in December with my BSN. I'm applying for the OSU RN Residency program and was wandering if anyone knows anything about this program. Specifically how many people are accepted, and generally what the program is like. Any info will help. Thanks!
I work for Ohio Health, and I'm pretty sure that the starting hourly rate is $23.21 (that could be off by a few cents, but that's pretty close). Shift differential is $4.75 and weekend differential is also $4.75. Hope that helps!
