A new grad RN/BSN would earn between $21.50 and $25.00 base rate at most of the major hospitals in the Dallas area. However, finding a new grad RN position is really tough in this area and involves stiff competition due to the sluggish economy.

I know this thread is a little old, but I'm sure others are still searching for the same information.

I got offered a job in Tyler (a couple hours outside of Dallas). It will start at $20/hr as a new grad. There is a 15% shift diff. I was wanting to move back to DFW, but it has been really hard to get interviews.

I am curious what the shift diffs in the DFW area are like. I knew the base pay in Tyler was lower but am curious, with shift diff, how much lower actual pay will turn out to be.

Wow...I'm getting jipped. The cost of living in Tyler is not that much less than (parts of) DFW. :mad:

Oh well, at least they're taking a chance on me, and it's in an area I'm interested in. Going to make the best of it. :)

I currently work PRN at a rehab hospital in the DFW area for $36/hour with $6 hourly shift diff for nights. I also work part-time at a local nursing home for $28 per hour. I am a newer RN with several years of experience as an LVN.

I was recently offered a full-time job on a med/surg unit in a DFW-area hospital for $26 hourly (night shift) with $3 shift diff for nights. I decided not to accept this position because they were unwilling to train for more than one week.

JPS offered me $27.75 hourly for med/surg, but they rescinded the offer a few weeks later.
