I am in Nursing school and I applied for a nursing externship this summer.. how much do they usually get paid?? just wondering. I wasn't sure how much I should ask for. Around here the CNA's make about $11 an hour starting out. (i'm in Central PA)

For my externship I think it was like $11/hour I think... and it was tax free (but then I had to pay it in)

I have to say though, my externship was WONDERFUL... it was the best learning experience ever!  I also was offered my job because of it... made me stand out above other applicants.

I had a preceptorship, and it was unpaid. I worked as a student nurse tech and made 18.75.

Pay is REALLY going to depend upon the the region. For example....as a RN I am moving in a couple of months. The job in GA is going to pay me 6.00/hr LESS than I make now in TX. However I have a friend with 15yrs more experience than I have. She lives in anther part of TX and makes 8.00/hr less than I do. I have another friend (in the bay area in CA) and she is a CNA. She makes almost double what I make as a RN.

Have you tried the message board at all nurses.com?

Try speaking with the other nurses that already work there and see what their opinions are.  Also, your instructors may have a good idea for what's a fair range.
