    Cincinnati is around $21-$22/hr, night shift usually pays a $4 shift dif though. No sign-on bonuses here, too many nursing schools and it's really hard to get a job as a new grad too! Just be thankful to have a job :0)
    Good luck, and just keep moving up the food chain!

    Just curious, are you working at University? I just got a job there, and this sounds just about what my pay will be.

    Hi, new grad here also! I started orientation last week, and new grad RN's here (about an hour west of Cleveland) start off at $24.19 base rate.

    Just curious, did you like working at Mercy? I had a couple of interviews with them (Anderson and Fairfield) but I decided to go with University.

    In downtown Columbus you can expect $23/hr or so + shift differential. If you work at OSU, they have absolutely amazing benefits as well.
