I have asked a number of friends whom all just got new grad nursing jobs at area hospitals and the results are:

UMMC: $28.50/hr + differential for nights and weekends

Frankling Square: $26.50/hr + differential

AAMC: $27.50/hr + differential

Hopkins: $60k/yr (no differential, but they have "high needs" pay which can be more than $50/hr)

NIH: $32/hr

The differentials are all different percentages and make each hospital equivalent to around $60k/yr. Keep in mind that in Maryland cost of living expenses are significantly different as you get closer to DC. A townhouse in a good school district only 1 hr. from DC will cost close to $400k...2 hrs. from DC, the same house would only cost $300K...very close to DC, the same house will be closer to $500-$600K.

I think the pay compared to the cost of living is very low in this state. Housing costs in this area will cost your $1000 plus without utilities. Childcare is also very expensive.

Been a nurse for ~2 years with and still don't make any of these salaries :( I think if we don't get some pretty significant raises this year, it's time to look for other options.

I won't say where I work as I don't want to throw any hospital under the bus.

I graduated from UMSON's CNL program and have my CNL certification as well. The place I work does not have a clinical ladder, so degree, certification, etc. mean nothing.

Same degree for me. You definitely need to look elsewhere.
