New grad BSN pay & job in LA area?


Hi all,

Just curious to know the approximate rate of pay for a recent grad w/BSN in the Los Angeles area. Also, approximately how long did it take for you to land your first job?

That's really difficult to say because LA is so huge. The hourly wage depends exactly on which part of LA that job is at. For instance, UCLA and cedars pay their new grads $50/hr, whereas in some of the smaller hospitals throughout LA could pay their new grads $35/hr. In the end, it really varies. As far as how long it took to find a job also varies. In most cases it could range anywhere between 3-6 months. Overall, it just varies. Don't give up and good luck
