Often you can’t negotiate for pay as a new grad because you have no experience to negotiate with.
I know we all need money to live but in this case you need to look at what else your first job will offer you in terms of new grad education.
Look for places that have new grad residencies (often you will just apply for a regular RN job and find out about this after but some jobs do hiring specifically for new grad). Ask about how long orientation is. Try to talk to recent new grads at these organizations to see if they got the full orientation or were “graduated” early due to staffing issues. Find out what certifications require and if they require initial certification (like ACLS) before you start or will they provide these classes at no cost to you.
Find out about paid time off and how they approve it. If it’s a seniority system you might never be able to take a scheduled vacation unless it’s in non popular times.
Basically, more than pay, you need to look for work life balance from the start. Being a nurse is a high stress job and once you get a good 2 years in you’ll be able to negotiate pay but as a new grad you just need to make sure you are finding a good fit since you’ll likely be contracted to stay there for a few years.

Also, be warned , the larger the sign on bonus the larger the problems. Usually these aren’t even offered to new grads but post covid nursing is a new world.
