    Most of you are making more money than I thought! We had just been discussing this so I though I would bump this post up. If anyone is making $20 and up I think that is good cause some of us will not be making that at all (unless doing float, etc).

    Maybe I need to move to Dallas area after I graduate?? Here they only start RNs out at $15.50 an hour, every place else everyone seems to be making $20 an up to start! Paramedics make between $8-$10 an hour! Isn't that crappy? I think Paramedics should get paid the same as nurses since they do such an awesome job. Most here drive beat up cars.

    In philly new grads typically start between $22-26 with a $3-4 difference on nights. I think after 5 years staff nurses plateau to about $40 an hour with cost of living raises per year.
