UMC treats their nurses the best but pays the worst, it will still feel like you won the lottery coming from NC

What do you mean by most nurse friendly? Which hospitals in Vegas have you looked into?

St. Rose hospitals are reputed to pay the best. If you believe there is a relationship between patient satisfaction scores, infection scores and nursing satisfaction; you can google the Leap Frog and CMS scores. Also, all VA facilities have publicly accessible employee satisfaction scores.

Do you plan to work at St. Rose when you graduate Dean?

I'd love to start as a new grad at $35.95/hour, but St Rose rarely hires new grads and they certainly wouldn't hire someone with an ADN only. :(

Depends on which specialty you are hired into. They do hire ADN nurses though, FYI. But I know they don't hire new grads often. Maybe you could start with HCA or VHS then transfer. And yes the starting wage is the highest in town.

Thank you so much. I've heard that many times that Saint Rose pay the highest in the area. So far I am seeing that UHS and HCA has a lot of openings.

Hello, I am currently a nursing student at Roseman University in Henderson, NV. I see there are some experienced nurses in this thread. My question is: what are some tips to land a job (as a new grad/no experience) into the emergency department? I have seen that VHS provides opportunities to hire new grads in different units. But, how about Dignity Health/St Rose? What can I do for this hospital system?

Also, as of today, what is the estimated salary or hourly range for a new grad working in Dignity? VHS? & HCA? Any differentials? I would like to explore my options
