Shift differentials aren't much: $0.75 for evenings/nights, $0.50 for weekends (combination for an night/weekend--$1.25). Extra-shift differential of $5.00 hour for working beyond your normally scheduled hours. Tuition reimbursement for new grads up to $7000 of nursing school costs.

Apr 7, '02Occupation: RN Joined: Dec '00; Posts: 826; Likes: 16Believe it is $21-22 range in the Hartford area plus differentials. My facility has excellent differentials -- 15% evenings, 25% straight nights, 25% weekends. Often loan forgiveness (most likely a portion), hiring bonus, tuition reimbursement, etc. Cost of living is very expensive. New grads -- you are more valuable than you realize -- negotiate the best offer you can in the facility that is the best "fit" for you.
