ATL, GA New grad pay


I am looking at moving to ATL upon graduation next May. I can't seem to find anywhere how much new nurses make in ATL. Can anyone help me out?

I just interviewed at Northside for a new grad position. They said they start nurses at 22.54 base pay. The differential for weekend is 3.00/hr and 5.00/night, but I think that starts after the 12 week internship. The recruiter said they are a bit higher than other hospitals but not much. It's going to be anywhere from 21-22 base/hr.

You can also visit some of the hospital websites and search the position to find the min and mid. I believe Emory and Gwinnett Medical Center lists that information. But the previous poster was correct with the rate range. Weekend option only, if offered, tends to pay a little more and shift differentials can vary by hospital.

Does anyone know the rate for the new grad residency at Children's Healthcare?

probably the same or similar to the other hospitals listed. From what I know ATL hospitals do not vary much in their pay scale.
