New grad pay in DFW?

  1. 0
    Does anyone have some insight to offer? I got my BSN and I've just been hired as a new grad in the ICU of medium sized hospital in the mid-cities area. Also, I'll be working nights. I've got 1y experience as a Nurse Extern. I'm pretty unfamiliar with starting salaries for new grads as well as differential pay. I'm also open to any advice for a new grad in the ICU!

    Probably anywhere from $22-25/hr. That's what I was told last year during interviews when I was a new grad.

    Most major acute care hospital systems in the D/FW area pay between $22 and $25 per hour, as the previous poster mentioned. LTAC hospitals such as Kindred and Lifecare pay a little more to new grads, between $28 and $31 per hour. Rehabilitation hospitals such as Reliant, Global, Texas Rehabilitation Hospital, and Regency also pay a little more than average.

    Seriously? 22-25? That sounds awful, esp. For bsn. But I guessed it's all related to experience. Good to know I will not be going to a hospital once I'm done.

    There is no difference in pay between BSN and RN no matter where you go.

    OP is currently an LPN/LVN in a dialysis center and, I assume, intends to continue working in dialysis once she earns the RN license.
