    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)

    Do you get offered overtime when you are a new grad?

    once you are hired to a floor and properly oriented they could very well offer OT.

    Does anyone what the shift diffs are for OSU, Ohiohealth, and Children's? I believe I've heard that Ohiohealth's is $4.75

    Yes, Ohio Health's starting rate for new grads is $22.75 with a $4.75 shift diff....hourly rates are evaluated in July each year, so that rate may go up a bit.

    thats pretty much the pay here in FL.

    but let me ask you,
    how is the cost of living?

    we pay here for a townhouse, mortgage $1,879/month plus utilities, association fees, pool house fees.... and that is not including the car, insurance, alarm, cable... etc etc.

    just wondering.

    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.
