    I work in LTC care and make $29.00 as a charge nurse. I have been at this facility since 2004. Like I said, pay is ok, but the Bennies are beyond awful. I understand that there are some facilities in RI and nearby MA that have pretty good benefits.
    I am not trying to get into a hospital, just for the health insurance
    New grad pay at RI Hospital and Hasbro is $29 before differentials. Perhaps I was a bit hasty saying LTC is the lowest but as I said before, LTC is something you have to be passionate about because I think LTC nurses are not paid nearly enough for what they do (in terms of wages or benefits) that's just my opinion.

    That is really good in my opinion! It is higher than what my nursing home would pay new grads for sure.

    No offense taken, LTC care is not for everyone, and it is getting harder and harder. I am not a Peds person, I went to school with that sole intention. I did my Peds rotation and said nooo way! It is cool that everyone can find their own place in nursing.

    Chris- where did you get that figure from? I heard that new grads in Lifespan start at about $24-25 plus differentials. Just curious.

    Two of my friends just graduated from nursing school (they were both CNAs for Lifespan and then hired as RNs) and they told me they were each offered $29 + differentials. I also heard a few other nurses mention they were offered similar amounts as new grads who were hired within the past year or so.

    I'm just going with with I've been told... Who really knows though until we each get our own offers? lol

    Chris- I heard through the grapevine from a friend who's parents are longtime nurses there that starting pay is 24.50

    It might be worth checking into at some point, since there's a pretty big difference between that and 29. Not that it matters right now...graduation isn't for a little while, lol

    Chris,
    Do you know what their schedule is like? Is it three 12 hour shifts? Days, evenings, nights, or a combination? I guess that all depends on the unit, but I was wondering because I remember hearing a couple years ago that Memorial Hospital will schedule nurses for 36 hours per week and that's considered full time. Sometimes nursing job listings will list full time as 40 hours and others will list full time as 36 hours. Just curious

    I was told that $20 and above is good for a LTC in RI...also, I am a new grad and just hoping for a job offer from anyone.

    Oh really? I would try to get more than $20, but I hear what you're saying. Any job will do if you're a new grad and want to get experience. Good luck on your job search. I'll be in your shoes next year!
