Starting Salary For A RN In NJ?!

  1. Just wanted to get an idea of what a starting RN would make. I have heard that it is usually about $30/hr when working a 12 hour shift. Is this accurate?! Also, do you get paid O/T over 40 hours?! I have heard yes. Thanks.

    In south NJ it's more like $25/hr for new grads. Overtime for our hospital starts after 36 hours. I think it's more in north NJ.

    Thank you. I had no idea the start rate could bo so high. Is that with a 2 year or 4 year degree?! Did you have any addition training or schooling after graduation. Thanks again.
