    This is my first post also. I've been a nurse for 6 1/2 yrs. I'm making $21.74 in OHIO. Looking at this thread, I'm starting to think I'm under-paid! I work in an area hospital with Great benefits.....but still. I work 3rd shift. Our differential is $3.00/hr. (of course I did start out at $14.xx/hour as a new grad 6 years ago

    Are these posts mostly hospital salaries??? I could understand the higher pay if it was agency or travelers.......

    Answering your question I think it's true. I've heard of a nurse (bilingual that started after graduation making $25.00 an hour at the ER. I think that maybe salaries are different in every state because of living costs.

    Just wanted to say hi to everyone because this is my first post.

    To answer you question, here in North California I had a friend with an ADN (maybe and RN) straight out of school get $37.00/hr. That makes me very happy because hopefully in 3.5 years I will be a RN also.
    Welcome and hope everything goes well for you.

    north fla the average is 17-19$ central fl is a little better but not much. if you want tomake money then you need to move to tampa, miami, or palm beach. the thing about north fl though is the cost of living. I know adn's with experience who are making $100,000 a year as DON's and Risk managers. you can get a really nice house for about 200,000$ or a decent one for 100,000$. lots of good hospitals too, especially in Gainesville, Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando. If you tell me a general area I could give you more info.
    hi. I was actually thinking on moving to Tampa, orlando or somewere near by. If you can give me more info would be really good. you can also send me a mesage if you want to give me more details. I just want to go over there knowing that I can be able to afford to live over there with my two children. Thanks again.

    Every area is different. In FL, pretty much the bottom of the totem pole, lol, starting pay for new grads is between $18-$20/hr.

    Hello Everyone!

    I love your site.

    I'd appreciate any advice you can give me. You will see from my profile I am 36. I have just applied to nursing school here in UK. I have enough quals to get a place, I reckon, but I have no experience. I have been thinking for years about getting into this field and have finally decided to go for it. Mid-life crisis?? My years of admin work have literally bored me to tears. I get NO satisfaction from it at all.

    I am currently trying to get into my local nursing home as a care assistant as it'll give me much needed experience and a feel for the work. Also, if I am too late for this year's nursing intake I'll gain SVQ quals while I wait.

    My question is - is 5 ft 10" too tall for this sort of work? My mum always thought I was too tall for this work. I don't know. I realise lifting is involved and I am not a weakling or anything. I've had the odd muscle spasm from being hunched at a desk for 15 years tho :chuckle

    I have heard that back trouble gets a lot of nurses and I'm a tall girl. My husband's aunt was a midwife at 6ft 1" and is very hunched now (late 60s) with osteoporosis but this may have happened regardless?!

    Help!
    Hello and welcome!!
    I think that the height does not matter on this field. I'm 5ft 6" and i'm a ARN student and none of my teachers have said anything to me. Also I have a teacher who is 6ft tall and she has over 10 years of service. so I think that you shoudn't worry about it. att. Sujeily
