You're going to find that any UPMC hospital starts at between $20-21 an hour, I think, regardless of where you graduate from. You'll get more with direct patient experience, such as PCT/NA time within the system.

This is some info I would like to have had while scoping out UPMC. I have a BSN. New grad. Just hired. Offered $23/hour. I negotiated an addt'l 23cents/hour for each year of relevant experience as a health educator. So, pay as new grad is $23.69/hour and opportunity for 3-5% raise in 6 months, I was told.
