Highest Paying Hospitals NYC

Updated | Posted

Hi All! Just wanted to start a post on salaries in NYC for those who are job searching or considering a switch. I just switched from a medical center outside the city to NYU Langone. I went from making a base of 66,500 to 89,500. There is also an OR incentive right now of 12,500 at NYU. So a new grad in the OR would be making 100,000.

Any other info on salaries out there? Please share if you can. Thanks!

Is this 89,500 base pay during the day? As well as the OR offer?

I've heard that Memorial Sloan Kettering is one of the highest paid hospitals in the city. for a nurse with 10 yrs of experience with a BSN it is upper $90k

Yes, Sloan is one of the highest paying hospitals, if not THE highest. And that's speaking of the day shift before figuring in large differentials for working nights and/or weekends. Plus, most would agree it's a very wonderful and supportive environment for nurses which is immeasurable.

Hi, can you tell me more about that OR incentive NYU Langone is offering to new grads?

And this is the list of hospitals I have with their average salaries for nurses:

Lenox Hill Hospital

Staff RN - $82,582

Maimonides Medical Center

Registered Nurse - $86,671

NewYork-Presbyterian

Registered Nurse (RN), Emergency Room 4 salaries - $86,500

Wyckoff Heights Medical Center

Registered Nurse salary or estimate About $73k - $80k

Hospital for Special Surgery

Registered Nurse - $84,953

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Registered Nurse (RN) salaries - $86,808

NYU Langone Medical Center

Registered Nurse - $89,280

Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center

RN Staff Nurse - $84,421

Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center

Registered Nurse - $81,670

Any new info?

When I started at Hospital for Special Surgery three years ago, they paid me $45.30/hr on days and $48.50/hr on nights. This was with 2 years experience + BSN diff + certification diff. I imagine it would be more now. When I was PRN there last summer, I believe I made $53/hr.

Thank you for clarifying! Many times people are posting salaries on the higher end, only to come to realize it was including a night differential. I always wonder if getting paid for experience was only specific to the unit applying for or RN experience in general. I have started looking around for per diem work, since I plan on keeping my regular full time job. I'm sure staying around PRN was simple for you since you already were familiar with the environment and didn't need to be oriented. I want to do per diem without making it a big deal at my current job. I am thinking it will be tough asking for "time off" when I would actually be orienting somewhere else for per diem.

You're welcome! I was pleasantly surprised with the compensation. I interviewed at NYP Cornell at the same time and the pay was going to be almost exactly the same... it was literally within a few pennies of each other.

How about HCC hospitals? How are the pay there?

All the city position salaries are listed on their website, starting salary now is roughly ~$75k for daytime and ~$80k for nights. HHC's salary is annual instead of hourly so it's tricky to figure out how that equates to an hourly salary.

I find this post very informative. I found that without experience even with a BSN it was almost impossible to find placement in the top NYC hospitals & I didn't know anyone who worked in those hospitals who could vouch for me, lol. So I'm currently, begrudgingly, in NY but in the upstate/western side, closer to Toronto, getting my experience & plan on moving back to NYC since my fiance is already living there. Any new updates on top NYC hospital salaries or what's helpful to know in getting placement in these hospitals?

Nice! & thank you for the info. Is that base pay with how much experience? Also did you apply online or via a recommendation who works there? Just wondering what the application, interview & hiring process is like. If you may shed some light on that. I'm in the western part of NY but wish to apply to NYP once I hit my 2yr mark of experience.
