Florida New Grad pay rate

  1. Hey, everyone. I am curious now that I finally got a job offer this morning how much is the pay rate in FL for the nurse residency or entry level nurses BSN , especially in Jacksonville without any experience healthcare related? I got really excited, accepted the offer right away through the phone, and I felt I should have tried to negotiate. I am not sure how that would work though since I only have one other job which is as a cashier. :'( I am now only waiting for my job offer email letter. :/

    P.S I have to move from another state so see?

    Most new grad pay rates aren't negotiable. The hospitals usually have set rates for new grads depending on whether you're a BSN grad or ADN grad. I very very highly doubt they would have negotiated with you anyway.

    I'm in a different area of Florida but a few years ago I was hired at $24.88/hour, with an increase to $26.83 when I was off orientation.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, I did find the information about this when I spoke with a recruiter at the hospital. Hopefully my pay rate will increase too, if possible in less than a year. lol
