Starting income for ADN R.N.s in AZ

  1. I was just hoping that some of you might be able to give me an idea of what is the typical starting income for R.N.s with an ADN in Arizona - particularly for Phoenix and Flaggstaff?

    Thank you,

    $22/hr is low to average from what I've been told. I know one recent graduate offerred $32/hr, but that was a hard-to-fill position in a smaller town, Native American hospital.

    I know that for FMC up in Flagstaff (and I also believe Verde Valley MC which is part of the same group), starting salary for new grad nurses, regardless of degree is 20.95/hr. (at least that's what I was offered). I do believe that the rates for experienced nurses is more, typically around 23-25/hr. range (if I am remembering right), with FMC usually giving like and extra .25/hr. for BSN. This may be a little inaccurate as I'm no longer there, so you may want to take it with a grain of salt. Also FWIW, FMC has a web site with their info on it...
    Cheers,

    I haven't seen any hospitals in Phoenix that offer a differential for a BSN. Starting pay is an average 24, give or take about .50. Differentials of 15% usually for nights, 6.5 for hours from 11-7 at my hospital and 3.5 from 3p to 11p

    What does that mean, "6.5". and "3.5"?

    What hospitals in Phoenix offer 3-11 and 11-7 shifts. I thought pretty much all the hospitals only had 7a-7p and 7p-7a.

    actually I meant $3.50 and $6.50 and hour for those hours

    Oh, OK. I didn't know, I was just using context clues!

    So if I want to work at your hospital I can expect to make 27.50/hr if I work 3p-11p or 30.50/hr if I work 11-7??? Wow, if so that is pretty good!

    The VA offers a couple of bucks more an hour for a BSN. Mayo offers something like .50 cents an hour.

    Thrash, I think that your calculations are quite a bit off.

    How so?

    Starting pay of 24 + 3.50 = 27.50
    24+ 6.50 =30.50

    Where are the calculation errors Jeff?
