I'm not sure about southwest but I know in south Florida new grads are get $26-30. With 2 years of experience down here should $32 and up. Whatever number you're comfortable add a buck and make it a nonnegotiable. Too many hospitals with too many RN shortages for that

You’ll get $27-$30 around here.

I would aim for $30 per hour. Probably land around $28-$29.

I would most definitely try to get a local travel assignment and not take less than 60/hr because of cost of living in Florida and inflation. 28.00 just won’t get it. And don’t be afraid to drive 45min-1hr outside the city limits.

Or is that too small a hit on the principal?
