Experienced nurse - expected salary?

  1. Hi. My wife has been nursing for about 14 years in the Philippines and more recently in the UK (last 3 years in ICU). She just passed her NCLEX and is now looking for jobs in the LA / Inland Empire area. Could anyone give any indication of the type of salary she should be looking for please? Also, how much annual leave - is it by hours or by days? I don't want her to start on the 10-day typical US allowance. One hospital hinted at a moving allowance being given so I'm hoping they're up for a little bit of negotiation as she's experienced in critical care, not a new grad. She did her PALS yesterday and has ACLS (?) and another course in the next two weeks, paid for by herself.

    Many thanks.

    Each hospital and unit is different. It's hard to give a general answer. She should just apply for the job that makes her most happy and see what they offer. Good luck!
