salary rate in upstate ny (watertown/ft drum)

Posted

Hi. Does anyone have any idea how much is the starting rate for RNs in the Watertown/Fort Drum area? I had an interview in one of the hospitals in the area but the interviewer did not bring up the salary, and neither did i. Was that bad? :confused:

Though I called the HR to follow up, she said the nurse manager is just waiting for my references to be cleared and they will call me up by the end of the week and will be scheduling the physical exam. But I did not get an offer yet.

Anyways, I would just like to know what to expect. The economy is so bad that I think I would accept any offer. Lol! But one institution i had an interview for was offering me 17/hr, no negotiations. Some people I had talked to said it was low. They are non profit so i guess that is why the salary is a bit low. But the hours are okay. Office hours without weekends. However, I would really want to get into a hospital so i can keep improving my skills. So anyone within the area, please enlighten me. Thank you.
