    I'm currently residing in Norcal and have never heard of anyone earning 423K as a RN, even if you literally live at the hospital, I don't really see this salary as being feasible. Bluebolt's salary assessment is pretty much on par for Bay area RN's. A friend of mine worked in Stanford's transplant OR & indicated he earned about 170K, but he was always oncall & worked loads of OT. I work in the Central Valley of CA & earn just over 100K without much OT at all. OT is usually available though, at a rate of about $1100 per shift, which is taxed at an absurd rate. Some of my coworkers have earned about 150-160K, from working a lot of extra shifts.

    A lot of none believers I shall post the pay via screenshot.

    @BlueBolt...BTW OR is not a lot of physical strain just saying. You were a travel nurse. You never said you went staff. Stanford is not the right hospital to be at.

    I dropped my jaw when i saw how much my hospital pays the highest CRNAs, up to 225k for the highest, about 10 above 200k. I have heard of new grad CRNAs starting at 400k in Los Angelos, but cost of living is susbstantially higher too. Travel assignments for a month ive seen 25k.....money to be made

    There are no new grads making 400k in LA unless they're working obscene amounts of overtime. Areas like LA have plenty of CRNAs and people who'd move there. There is no incentive for the hospital to pay that much.

    I'm finding all of this extremely hard to believe and funny how it's always someone's friend or someone they know making an extremely ridiculous amount of money. It's never the person posting the information.

    It would be rare for a CRNA to make $400K working for/employed by a hospital or ASC working as a staff CRNA. Area of the country has a lot to do with salaries, but insurance compensation and hospital subsidies also have a large impact on anesthesia salaries. The larger more urban/"desirable" places to live often do not pay as high unless the cost of living is substantially greater in that area. Then you have to figure in cost of living in comparison to your salary.

    You know what nevermind. If you can't find the meaning of how to float a swan on the internet then you won't find salary info either.
