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.

    Hey TexHaws thank you for the helpful information. I am heavily considering applying to one of Methodist Dallas new grad internships fro June 2015. I have tried to contact the lady in HR that the website says to call for more info, but she has not returned my calls. I am looking to relocate to Dallas when I graduate in May with my BSN. Do you know anything about the new graduate internships there?

    More then likely its if the person signs up for a "bonus shift" then they get an extra $10 an hour on top of the other pay. Usually this is if they need more staffing on certain days.
