I am in school working towards nursing.... I could apply as of last summer but I can't afford daycare for my two kids (third on the way) aiming for Fall 2016... but anyways. I am looking at hospital jobs to make a little money to help save towards the future ( afternoons/evenings so I don't have to pay for daycare which would suck up my whole pay check) and I saw several openings for housekeeping. I just want to know roughly what they make starting out so I can figure out if it's something looking into. It's 2:30 - 11 PM 40 hrs a week in a hospital.

Pay is very influenced by the cost of living where you are. Without that information, there isn't much info we can give in return. You can always try sites like salary.com - just keep in mind that their averages are for everyone from new hire to the most experienced person, so the averages aren't going to reflect what someone just starting out is going to be making.

Some hospitals in my area pay housekeepers very well. Kaiser calls them "environmental services"

It's a union job.
