How much money does a nursing student make while they’re still in school?

How much money do they make after they graduate?

Piotr Findura Answered question September 12, 2023

As a student you don’t get paid in the US. Recently I started a new job and saw that they were offering 33-35/hr for new nurses.

Hey Stacey. So at least here in Canada as a student we don’t get paid a dime for our schooling placement hours. Even for our consolation which is I think 450hours of full time work unpaid. Just to be eligible to graduate.

As for how much we make after we graduate all depends on where you wanna go work.
Hospitals here pay starting around 33/hr for RPNs which was just recently increased from like 26 or 27. Sadly still not enough.
