“I finally landed my first job interview, after graduating from the University of Iowa with my BSN. And I want to be prepared to talk “salary.” Knowing that the average RN salary is around $65,000, I’m wondering what a fair starting salary is for a new grad. I really, really hope I get a job offer, and if they ask me about my salary expectation, I want to throw out a good number. What’s a fair starting salary for a new RN?”
