New Grad Pay in Texas?

  1. 0 I'm a new grad in Texas. I was just wondering what was a normal base pay as a new grad (with your specialty)?

    Thanks!

    New grad pay is highly dependent upon the city. . .

    Dallas/Fort Worth - $22 to $25 hourly at major acute care hospitals
    San Antonio - $19 to $23 hourly at major acute care hospitals
    Austin - $19 to $23 hourly at major acute care hospitals
    Houston - $23 to $27 hourly at major acute care hospitals

    Thanks a lot! Just wanted to make sure of the new grad starting pay to prevent from getting jipped. However, being a new grad, I sort of don't have a choice...I have to take what I can get.

    Thanks again!

    Are these new grad rates with or without shift differentials?

    These are base rates with no shift differentials.

    Just chiming in here...my wife is a new grad in a small city in Western TX. She is getting $21/hour plus evening shift diff starting at 3pm and weekend shift diff beginning fridays at 3pm.
    She actually got a decent sign on bonus as well. $4k (we were shocked at any kind of sign on bonus)

    She was a May BSN graduate and got her position where she did her senior practicum.

    My wife is an experienced respiratory therapist, and we just moved to San Antonio. Pay here is quite a bit lower than what we are used to (coming from Virginia). She starts at about $24 an hour, plus the night differential which is only about $2.50. I am not sure what a new grad would start at but I would guess about $22 from what she told me. It is cheaper to live in Tx, however.

    The Commuter's ranges seem pretty accurate from what i remember during the job hunting process. I'm a new grad working in San Antonio (but I did interview for jobs in Houston - my hometown). At my hospital in SA i'm making $21/hr plus a $4.55 night shift differential and additional differential for weekends. Houston's rates were significantly higher.

    I have been a nurse 2 years. I started with 24.75 (0.75 for BSN LOL). I stayed there 1 year and decided to move to local traveling and bumped up to $36 per hour not including shift diff!! Typical shift diff in Dallas is $3-4 starting at 3pm and $5-6 on weekends! You make the most as a new nurse working Friday, Saturday, Sunday because you get about $10 more per hour.

    I work med/surg at a smaller hospital in the DFW area. As a new grad, I started at 25/hr. And then I'm night shift, so that's an extra $4/hr, and then $6/hr weekend diff. Working a weekend night is pretty sweet pay for a new grad lol

    Was this supposed to be funny? Sarcastic? I'm not getting the joke.
