Hospitals and salary in Richmond, VA

Posted

Hi everybody!

I'm planning on moving to Richmond, VA in a few months and I have a couple of questions.

-What hospitals do you think are the best in the Richmond area?

-How much is the pay for a night shift RN?

Thank you!

Hi,

I am from vancouver and I saw your post. The starting salary is pretty much the same in almost every hospital in the area, around $29 something, plus your past experience that you will bring wit you. Where are you from?

Hi There! Just finishing school at VCU SON. Here's the deal: If you want Magnet status, top notch research, Level 1 trauma center and AMAZINGLY diverse specialties, and a hospital that promotes your professional development, work at VCU medical center. Best out there. Bon Secours is also very nice, but faith-based (not against, just saying...) and community-hospital. No Bias, I don't work for VCU, but I used to, and it's amazing.

oh, and new grads start out as Clinical I RNs at about 23/hr

Thank you for your replies. I'm in NC now and I have 2 years of experience in Med/Surg. I'm going to look into VCU medical center and see what happens. Thanks again!

Any areas at VCU that are notorious to stay away from? I am moving up there in June as well from NC. I have been at the community hospital I am in right now since September 2009. I know there are "bad" areas at the current hospital I am (for example) that even though I would like to work in that area, I stay away from due to the reputation...(bad management/bad cliques). Should I ask for more than new grad pay? New grad pay here is 20/hr. Thanks!
