    In st. Louis mo. GN start off with 19.00 hr and with the shift diff for the evening and nights you will recieve an additional 4.50.. The cost of living is okay... In a nice area a two bedroom apt will cost @ least 725. So you are right it all depend

    new graduate nurses in DC are being offered $26.73 for days, %15 more at nights (30.73) and $5 on weekends (31.73 - 35.73). Whereas in Maryland I was offered around $23.75 for days and $3 more for nights. I guess it depends on the cost of living in your area. NY and Ca probably pay the most. I also applied in Hawaii and they offered about $28/hr.

    I live in one of the larger towns in Kansas. Our town is a college town, so cost of living in this county is one of the highest in the state--nonethless, we are talking about Kansas, folks, so the cost of living is no where near some other places. An apartment is about 300-400 per bedroom. Average price of a home is somewhere in the $180s. New grads at my hospital start out at 20/hr. There is a $3/hour night differential, plus a $2/hr weekend differential. Family insurance through the hospital is about $350/mo, single is somewhere around $150, I think (I'm not single...). Partial tutition reimbursement is possible, it's something like 30% of your tuition. Not as much as some places, but every little bit helps!

    In NYC, new grads could get 34 to 37 per hour starting if in a private hospital with an Associates Degree. With a BSN, there is about 1000 to 1500 dollar annual salary difference.
