  1. 0
    hi everyone,
    I am new to this forum and to Ohio. I just move here about a month ago, took my boards, and got a job....the only thing is that I am not sure what the wage is for new RN grads?? I am about an hour North of Columbus. Does anyone have any helpful info for me?? Thanks

    Everywhere I have seen in OH (Dayton and Cleveland), the starting wage is right around $20/hour.... each hospital might be a little more or a little less, but it's usually right around there.

    thank you for the info. I will be starting at 20/hr. but I wanted to know if that was reasonable or not. Really wish it were more though!!

    My daughter graduated a year ago and was hired in between 21-22/hour before any differentials. She's at a teaching hospital in NE Ohio.
    Congratulations and good luck!

    Hiya! my wife just passed her boards and interviewed in northeast ohio. Summahealth hospitals in/around Akron start new grads at 21 +differential. She took a job at Barberton hospital and gets $23 + $2 night shift differential. hope that helps........i believe they have a 3k sign on bonus too.

    I am just across the border in Michigan. I wonder why the wage scale drops so dramatically in Ohio? I know here in Michigan the wages start out at 23 an hour and up for a new grad nurse. Seasoned nurses make much more than that.

    I guess I did not factor that in. It is expensive to live here in Michigan.
