Hello, I'm moving to TN (Nashville - Franklin area) and have been finding LTC RN jobs online that state they pay well, and then I find out that they pay about $29/hr. Is that the normal rate for an RN/BSN with experience? I was an LPN prior to becoming an RN several years ago. Any suggestions as to what would be an OK hourly rate to ask for on my job applications? Does a BSN mean a little more money? Thanks!

HI VegGal, I'm going to piggy-back on your thread 🙂  I have been trying to get an idea what an RN's pay rate is. I'm planning on moving from WA to Nashville within the next 3 years, so I know I'm going take a pay cut but I would like to plan for how much. Have you had any luck getting an offer you feel was more appropriate?

Hello! So I've found that most LTC in the Nashville area really do only pay about $26 - $29, but in a few cases in what they consider "skilled LTC" or regular skilled, they will go up to about $30 - 31. I also found one place that has higher acuity clients (right out of the hospital into skilled) and they pay about $33, but that's about the highest rate there.

At this time, I'm really hoping for something other than skilled, so I'm still looking. I'll be living in the Nashville area in about a month, so if you need some info, send me a message then and I'll let you know what I find. All the best in your future plans!
