I have two job opportunities/offers and I need some major advice. One is for St David's South Austin Medical Center in Austin and the other is for Scott and White Memorial in Temple. St David's has told me they start new RN grads at 22.02 an hour. Is this typical? And Does any one know how much Scott and White pays new grad RN's? Scott and White is suppose to be contacting me this week with an offer...but I need to make a decision about St David's soon by today or tomorrow. St David's is for an acute med/surg telemetry unit and Scott and White is for a med/surg oncology unit.
I am from Washington state so the pay scale for RNs is much different and I am trying to get an idea about the Texas pay scale for new RNs.
Also, can any one give me any opinions on St David's vs Scott and White for starting out? Or living in Austin vs Temple? Or Telemetry vs oncology?
Lots of questions, but I am having a very hard time deciding so if anyone has any advice on any of these topics whatsoever, please send them my way!
