- May 28, '12 by lonestar9918I'm just starting nursing school but my wife just graduated and got a job.
Small hospital in TX. BSN. PCU/telemetry/step-down unit.
$21/hr base + $3 for weekends and $3 for nights. Night diff. begins at 1500 and weekend begins at 1500 on Friday. She also received a decent sign-on bonus. We thought sign on bonuses were a thing of the past, apparently not everywhere!
- May 28, '12 by cayenne06Western Mass, pediatric home care. Hired as an ADN new grad for 30.75/hour doing overnight private duty. No benefits.
I was also offered 28.50 at a local hospital (per diem) , 26/hour at a nursing home (with benefits) and 23.75 at a state long term acute care hospital (with benefits).
So even in my tiny corner of the map, salaries range widely for new graduates.
- May 28, '12 by CarryThatWeightIn 2009 I was a new grad ADN at a hospital in Southern California and made $29.03 an hour, base. I did get night and weekend differentials but I can't remember what they were. I think BSN's made about $1.50 more than ADN's at that time.
- May 31, '12 by jamie.glazeI'm a May 2012 grad - I applied for Parkland in Dallas, but didn't get in - Residency would have paid 24.52 hr plus evening, night, & weekend diff, Other smaller hospitals in the area seem to start as low as $20 plus shift diff. ADN/BSN did not matter - applied and interviewed March 2012, for L&D and NICU. Should have cast my net wider.... but I want to be a CNM so I was trying to focus in.
- Jun 1, '12 by BaltimoreHonBaltimore: $26.38 base salary, with rotating D/N 28.89/hr plus excellent benefits at magnet hospital. From other local new grads I hear the starting salaries average around $26. Many new grads are having trouble finding work here
- Jun 1, '12 by BlessedRN815Eastern SC - 1 of the bigger hospitals start at $23.66 plus differentials, another starts lower but higher differentials for nights & wknds.
- Jun 1, '12 by tyvinStarting "union" hourly wage for an RN I is $32.50 here in our 50th state. Pay scale goes up quickly as years of experience cumulate. The doctor's offices and clinics are a different story though. I was once offered $12 an hour in an ob/gyn clinic but these days it appears to me that the clinics and offices are staffed mostly with med techs.
