here in the twin cities hospitals pay entry level nurses about $24 to $25 per hour. :chuckle as of may 2005, the fairview "chain" of hospitals pay an associate degree nurse $24.35, and a bachelors nurse, any bachelors degree, $25.20 to start. not to shabby for a rookie employee. they also have tuition reimbursement at many twin cities hospitals, up to $10,000. on the down side, the severe shortage of nurses seems to be over in mn.
the word on the street is that the "market" is cooling for rn's. snoopd
Quote from kellink
hello guys!! i am new to this board, but want to start a survey, or at least reply, you don't have to give your name. i am a current student in lpn school, but want to do a survey on pay, which would probably be helpful to a majority of people. 1. state your city you live in 2. what kind of nursing care you do 3. lpn/lvn/rn 4. rate of pay maybe some of us new nursing students can get an idea of what we're looking at! thanks :chuckle
