Hey everyone !
I am currently in the throws of nursing school set to finish my accelerated BSN in August 2021. I am planning to join my husband in Austin (he is doing travel nursing for the time being) around then. I am curious to know what the RANGE of new grad pay looks like in the Austin vicinity. Again, a RANGE. Somehow, as a new grad in Philly, my husband was offered $39/hr on a med surge floor in a 100bed (fairly small) hospital. I feel like thats pretttttty solid considering this was his FIRST position and do not want to get my hopes up, don't worry I havent LOL. Can anyone give an idea of the range of pay for a new grad? Does it vary floor to floor? I have been working as an extern since July since we have had NO clinicals in person so I am VERY thankful for the experiences I have had at work, hoping it plays in my favor slightly. Also looking to join a residency program and would love input on when you think it makes sense to start applying, which hospitals have good reputations etc, although honestly im not picky I have no clue what I want to do specifically, hence the second degree!
This turned out to be longer than I thought!
If you read this far thanks so much! If anyone wants to connect lmk! I make a mean sugar cookie.
