Salaries

  1. I am an ER nurse (RN, CEN) with over 12 years nursing experience who is planning to move from Georgia to Pennsylvania. Can anybody help me find out what kind of salary I can expect (or should require) in the Harrisburg, PA, region? Thank you.

    Hello,
    I was looking at the rates for an ER RN and thought that they seemed pretty high as most of the rates I have found are like around$14 to $15 an hour. But the rates I have found are also rates for people with lil or no expereince. I was wodnernig what the starting salaries would be for those same areas but for starting pay for people with no expereince.
    Thanks,
    Kim

    I'm a little late with this post. I just joined. Here's the Federal Stats on what a RN makes in different states. The link to the site is: http://stats.bls.gov/oes/state/oessrch2.htm
