    If you are still interested, go to salarymonster.com. I think in connecticut the average starting salary in between $45-$50 thousand. I guess it depends on where you work. my sister in a LPN and she make $29 an hour working every weekend 12 hour shifts in long term care, but as a new grad, hospitals are offering between $22-24/hr. Good luck.

    There is definatly a nursing shortage in Ct and you will not have any trouble finding a position!!
    As for rates of pay- To the best of my knowledge and from what I have seen myself and heard from others-

    Home Care
    per visit is about $35/visit and $50 or $60 for an admission.

    Not so sure anymore. It's been so long!

    Long term care
    RN's about 24-28 base + shift diffs, w/e diffs, etc. Plus usually more if you supervise.
    In a 90 bed facility I had made 24 base + 4 Supervisor pay + 1.50 shift diff + 1.50 weekend diff. which brought me up to $31/hr on weekends. And I believe that is one of the lower paying positions.

    Staff Relief
    Generally 35/hr to take the floor, 40 to sup and 50 to sup w/ floor. no benefits though.....

    Again, these figures are only from what I can recall. Also, the pay varies depending on what location you would be living/working in. Good luck in your decision and your job quest!!

    I was offered positions at St. Francis in Hartford and two other CT hospitals (one of which is a Hartford Healthcare/ Hartford Hospital affiliate), and the offers ranged from $27.25-$28.85/hr (base, before differentials). The only classmates of mine who are making more than that are the ones who went into LTC, which is supposedly around $30/hr starting.
    Doesn't quite add up to that $70k average that everyone talks about, haha.
