How much do new grad RN's make in Houston, Texas?

  1. 0
    My husband graduated and is waiting to take the N-Clex. I have contacted hospitals down in Houston and I cannot get any information on the pay and benefits until we send in our resume which we cannot until he takes the N-Clex. Could someone please tell me how much a new grad can expect to make?

    Anywhere from 45-50 depending on the facility and the role.

    I know for sure St. Luke's is 27.50/hr (but they are on the high end), and Memorial Hermann TMC is $21/hr which is bumped up to $23/hr after orientation.

    I've heard MD Anderson and Texas Children's both start at $24/hr.

    Is St. Luke a hospital? I need to go where the experience is at..such as a teaching hospital.

    These numbers look about right. I'm a GN in the med center so I know.

    Is the pay about the same in the DFW area or less?

    D/FW-area hospitals are slightly lower-paying than the ones in Houston. Hospitals in D/FW will pay a new grad between $22.50 and $25 hourly. The pay can be significantly higher if you are willing to do LTC, home health, hospice, corrections, or some other type of nursing outside the hospital setting.
