    Skyline and some HCA hospitals will start out: Not saying this is the norm. Just from what I've seen with my own eyes.
    ASN (females) -18.00 ASN (males) - no idea
    BSN (females) - 19.00 BSN (males) - 21.60
    Shift diff - 3 or 4.00

    Vanderbilt - I've heard anywhere from 18-24 starting out.


    St. Thomas - I've heard just 18-19 to start out.

    Hope this helps!

    This is RN pay? I make more than some of those and I'm an LPN living in a very rural area. At least I know not to expect a big raise if/when I finish my RN now .

    Exactly, lol. But the VA will pay you for your experience as an LPN if you get a job there as an RN.

    Vanderbilt it 36 hours a week and like 1 shift of overtime per 6week scheduling period. MTMC is 36 hours a week with no overtime required unless you want it. VA is 40 hours a week with no overtime unless you want it.

    I PROMISE you Vandy will NOT pay a new grad anywhere near $24 an hour. You may get $18-21. They have good shift differentials though, and good insurance. And another poster mistakenly said they require one OT shift each six weeks, which is slightly misleading. They require an on call shift every 6 weeks, but if your unit is short then you will probably get called in.

    Is the VA only 8 hour shifts?

    His reported shift diffs are inaccurate so it's likely the pay rates are too.

    Feels like I'm missing something here... male nurses get paid more?

    I think the higher pay for males is a fish tale because that would be a prove able gender/sex discrimination and a lawsuit filed against the hospital. The economy is bad, but that is no excuse to break the law.
