Years ago I checked out Montana and Wyoming because ex-husbicus bastardus wanted to move there. I got a callback from one of the HR's and when she told me the salaray I said "You're kidding!" She said the cost of living there was very low, therefore the salaries were too. Very attractive, until I made the ex see that while the cost of living in those states may be low, the bills we brought with us would kill us on that kind of salary. Between my nursing job and his RT job we would have made what ONE of us was making in CA.

I can't believe Tennessee didn't make the bottom 10. I thought our pay pretty much sucked.

Kylee,
I hope you find a place where the wages are that much...don't go to work for the state right now because things are reallllllllly tuff there. I have 14 mandatory unpaid days over the next year and a half and they are talking about closing 3 prisons so those people will have to find other jobs....of course I don't have to worry about that as I have been with the state for 20 years but it is just the fact that I am not really seeing the wages that the post is saying right now in Oregon.

I cannot believe our average is 16.52--I was making that at a small hospital about 2 years out of nursing school and that was almost 10 years ago. It has to be area dependent--I think the average new grad is making around 20 dollars a hour near where I live. Maybe not though--I don't know any new grads lol.

I live in WV, started at $17.42 in June of 08, across the board pay increase in July of 09 raised the starting wage to $19.03, now making $19.33 base. Work night shift, so more than that.

That must the average for all of Ca. I can tell you that in La county it is about $10 higher than that an hour. Lvn top pay is just under what is listed on for Ca.

Yeah, my friend is working in LA county, and her first year as an RN she made about $80k. She works night, so it's more... but, regardless $80k is a pretty penny.
