hey guys. I'm a new grad nurse in Houston working in the medical center. What is your hospital's base rate for new grads? I got an offer from St. Luke's with $28 an hour.

When did you hear back from St. Lukes? I turned in the survey that they wanted us to complete but haven't heard back since.

$28/hr is good pay for a new grad. Very.

Harris County is 28$. Once I hit my one year after being a new grad this year I jumped to 35$.

I would not accept that offer. My last job I made $28 as an LVN. There’s plenty of jobs in Houston offering way more than that for new grads.

Well that’s what the residencies are paying these days from what I gathered  unfortunately, between 28 and 29. After the first year there’s like a big raise. If you want to make more then home health might be an option.

Do you all know if the differentials need to be stated in the residency offer? Im worried if they are not, I might never receive them.
