I have a quick question. Does all new grad starts with the same pay rate or it depends on what unit or department you will be assigned? If it matters, I am specifically talking about Florida and one who has BSN. Thanks!
It's highly variable based on your area of the country. Some hospitals pay more for BSN, others don't. Some may pay more for specialty areas. As far as I know, when I was a new grad we all started out at the same base salary but everyone in my program was working on a floor. I have no idea if the pay was different for ICU, ER or OR. I do know clinic nurses were typically paid about ~20% less and nurses who worked at the satellite locations even less than that. They didn't have to pay to park, however.
