RN new graduate rate at GWU and other area hospitals?Register Today!
- by rmc2 Oct 29, '08Hi there. I have a RN friend of mine who is interested in working as George Washington University Hospital. Any idea as to what the new graduate rate is and any other information? Thanks. I told her I know that the new graduate rate at the Washington Hospital Center is $27.673, and she is wondering if GWU's is the same, lower or higher.

- Dec 3, '08 by spring6723The new grad rate at GW is $25/hr, and I'm not sure about the shift differentials - they do have a $4000 yearly retention bonus, which is pretty awesome and good education benefits - 90% tuition at GW University.
At the moment, I'm trying to decide whether to take a job there or Holy Cross, so we'll see how that works out!

Anyway, my question is is there another new grad program before the end of this year? Also, how many patients are assigned to you in a regular floor meaning not critical icu? like in california medsurg is usually 4 but they are permitted to have up to 5 i think.
I hear florida is like the worst because they give you like 7 patients. haha and maybe some other states i don't know about.
