Does anyone know how much an RN would make per hour in the Nashville, TN area? I have 6.5 years experience, mostly in labor and delivery. I can't seem to get any clear information online, and the hospitals don't post their wages on their websites. Also, does anyone know of good hospitals to work at there? Thanks.

I'd say you'll make just as much as in L.A.
I base this on an article I read that claimed that jobs in the Medical field are the best paying and Kentucky is one of the best paying states for such jobs (I assume Kentucky == Tennessee). In addition, there is a critical shortages of nurses nationwide.

Thanks. Unfortunately there have been nurse lay-offs in different states. It's not as easy to find the job you want as it was a couple years ago. I saw some figures around $30/hr in Nashville. That seems so low though and I'm wondering if it's true.

$30 / hour with bennies is on the high side for Nashville.

Last I heard, Vandy starts RNs between $19-20 per hour but has incredible benefits. If you have several years of experience, that figure will probably be higher.

Murfreesboro $24 and up depending on job. But if a place offers a sign on bonus there is a reason. Check out the reasons first before signing on. The place might not be that good. Lebanon hospital used to be one of those.

I don't know what RNs make but $30/hr doesn't seem "low" to me. How much were you expecting ?

The California average seems to be between $35-$40/hr.

The Tennessee average seems to be between $25-$30/hr.

Looking at salary.com, of course.

The cost of living in Tennessee is much lower than California, I would assume. It probably all comes out in the wash...
