I am starting at Watts School of Nursing and was wondering what to expect as my starting pay upon graduation as a RN at Duke Medical facility or UNC.  Of course, I plan to continue and get my BSN after I start work but was curious about the starting salary at graduation.  Has anyone just completed a RN program and started at Duke or UNC?  If so, what was your starting pay?  Pros and cons of Duke vs UNC?  Thanks!

When I started at Duke in 2017, new grad starting rate was 23.85. I'm not sure about UNC. 

I'm a Watts Alumna, good luck in the program!
