    In El Paso (often forgotten city in Texas) pay at the hospital I'm at for a new grad is $22 with $3 night differential. Cost of living is quite low. Other hospitals in the area start new grads at $24 with $3 night differential and $8 weekend differential. I chose the hospital where I am at bc of it's reputation.

    currently doing pre-reqs for a nursing program. I have a previous bachelor's and work a full time job in global logistics.

    My main question is concerning the pay scale for nurses. When I calculate my yearly salary - I multiply my hourly by 2080 ( 40 hrs/week x 52 wks a year ).

    Is this an accurate way to calculate nursing salary or is it completely different. Any info would be greatly appreciated by this "newbie"

    Thanks ! and congrats to all the new hires.

    Most nurses in a hospital setting work 36 hours per week (three 12 hour shifts) for about 50 weeks per year.

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed information.

    I was perusing this post because I am in the process of applying to a job as a new graduate and part of the application required me to put in my expected salary/hourly wage.
