    New Grad ASC salary?

    The avg salary in a large market is around $25-27/hr. Asking for $55K is around $26.44/hr which it is on the high end. If you can manage to neg a salary of no less than $52K, it comes out to $25/hr which is on the low end BUT at least you have a job in this tough economy

    New Grad ASC salary?

    Yeah, 40K is pretty low. It only average about $19.23/hr. Try to ask for $55K and if your future employer says no, you can always negotiate
  8. You are correct that the average pay is $25-$27/hr with benefits BUT the economy sucks! You are lucky to have a job since alot of my classmates are still trying to get an interview since December. Just try to work where you are for at least 6 months so you have some experience when you apply for another job elsewhere. I have a friend who works in a nursing home and all she do is pass meds all day
  9. I prefer the classroom course myself. I like someone who can teach me how to pass NCLEX than an online course which you couldn't really ask any questions or get any input from the course itself. Heck, it's only another 50 bucks more :)

  14. 1) Don't give up 2) Get an extension of your student loans 3) Get a job working as a CNA for now 4) Job market will open up, it always has and will 5) When you get the call, don't be picky and take anything to get the experience

    Yikes! Relocating to Chicago Area/ New Grad

    Worst time at this moment. Most of the bigger hospitals like rush, uic, u of c, loyola, advocate are in a hiring freeze. I must of sent out like over 50 resumes with no response. They all cancelled their summer and fall new grad program so that kinda tell you what is going on in this economy. Northfield is a nice suburb. You have a few hospitals in your area like glenbrook hospital, children's and rush you can apply to. Hopefully in Dec when you graduate, things will be better :)
