Is my ED salary offer appropriate?

  1. Hello TN nurses!

    I am so excited to have an offer at a TN hospital in the ED. However, I'm checking if this offer seems like a good salary, as I'm not from TN. I have 2 years of experience as a nurse, but am new to the ED. They are offering me $23.75. Could anyone give me some perspective?

    thank you so much!

    It would be helpful to give a more specific location. East, Middle, West? Metro/rural? That said I don't think TN pays as much as other states.

    I’m from North Alabama and I’ve got a friend who says that a hospital her friend works at pays $32/hr as a new grad with an ADN (which is crazy because our hospital we do clinicals at pays $18/hr!) I have a coworker that started as a new grad at a hospital in the same system as the girl with the $32/hr job and she said she got about $22 or $24 per hour as a new grad with a BSN. She came to our hospital and switched to nights to make approximately the same amount as what she used to make.

    Is that ED taking into account your experience? Because I’ve heard places say “this is the standard pay.... and with your experience it’ll be ....” but sometimes you need to ask “is this including my experience? Or is this just standard pay?”
