I live in southeast kansas and will be graduating next spring with my BSN. Can anyone out there give me an idea of what starting salaries are for a new grad. I am looking at working in either Kansas, Oklahoma, or Missouri. A lot of people ask me what a new RN makes and I have have no idea. I have heard in the town I live in that the top pay for an RN is 15.00/hr. It is a town of about 10,000, but I still think that is very low. Looking forward to everyone's input.
