    Spartanburg Community College?

    I wasn't able to start that semester, so I'm getting everything ready to start this semester. Maybe we will have some classes together in 2019!!! Add me or something so we can compare schedules later!

    This doesn't seem right...

    Thanks for replying, Rose Queen, and I have considered those things, as I have tried to focus my research on starting salary vs average. It seems that they just use one for the same. Or, staying pay meaning a nurse who isn't a new grad just starting at the hospital with experience... Im not trying to complain, I will gladly accept that pay I just didn't think there would be that much of a difference. I mean $19 vs $24 is a whole $5 per hr difference! I guess it doesn't really matter. It's just to start out, and I know I won't get top of the line pay right out of school.

    This doesn't seem right...

    So as I was checking on a couple applications (non nursing, im not a nurse yet) at my favorite hospital, I asked what departments do fresh graduate nurses often get to choose from, and what does the pay look like. She answered, "Well I am not a nurse recruiter, so I dont know all the departments but of course they wouldn't put a new grad in say, the ER or surgery. But the starting pay for new grads, no matter the department, is $19.25." What? That cant be right! I mean out of all the salaries I have seen online- even ones for this same hospital-I have never seen an RN get paid that low. Could it be that my favorite hospital is just cheap, and if it is, why is it considered one of the best places to work in our area?

    Hello! First, I havent started school yet but if everything works out I will take a few classes in the spring and summer, then start the program in the fall of 2018. This is my first post and I wanted to ask what people who attended SCC felt about it, and more importantly, what offers did you get after graduation? Are we allowed to say who offered you what pay? Im just trying to get an idea of what nurses fresh out of school make in my area. I live in Gaffney, the hospital we have here used to be really bad until it was bought out by Mary Black, and now it has improved, but I will always love SRHS (Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System). I've worked there as a newborn photographer and LOVED it! I had both children there, feel safe and at home there, etc. Id just like to know what people's thoughts are on Scc and SRHS vs Mary Black. Thanks! April
