    I live in Savannah and attend JSCC in the RN program. Hopefully, if all goes well, I will graduate in 2007. Does anyone know the starting salary for RN's at the hospitals in Jackson and also is anyone else in the RN program at JSCC?

    From what I learned at both hospitals there, starting salary is not great. $16 and change at both, though Regional had a $3 differential for nights/evenings, and I knew nurses at JMCGH who worked Baylor shifts and made better money.

    I now live and work in Memphis, and have to say that even though we have been insanely swamped in the ER at Methodist lately, it is 1 million times better than my experiences at both Jackson hospitals. For lots of reasons, not the least of which I am making almost twice what JMCGH paid me, and I work fewer hours. Any overtime is my decision, not my manager's.

    My parents are in Jackson, I grew up and married there, but there is no way I'd recommend working as an RN at either hospital there.
