    Yes agree, I live in IL for instance. The nurses who reside in Chicago bring in the bring bucks while those of us that live in the cornfields bring in the considerably less.

    Well I believe us upstate people are weighing the averages down... The base pay in my hospital is $24/hr and there are area hospitals that pay even less.
    Yeah I do know upstate makes way less. Even in westchester. I started for a year in a westchester county hospital and made $35/HR...
    Guess I'll stick with the nyc hospitals..

    It's not all relative. In and around San Fran, San Diego, or L.A., yes, but not where we live. In the midwest where pay is dismal, a comparable house is close to what it is here. Plenty of nice homes in my ZIP code for less than $350,000. I lived and worked in 9 states and D.C. This is by far the best pay for the lowest cost of living. A new nurse at our facility starts out with 4.5 weeks PTO a year. Takes me 20 minutes to drive to work, no traffic jams, toll roads, etc.

    Poster stated his location, why did you refer to a different location?

    California is huge with a very diverse demographic. I live an hour from this referenced poster. We rent out a nice newer home for $1,300/month. $56/hr plus all of the differentials and benefits is a good lifestyle and no where remotely to the costs of living in the Bay Area.

    Edit.

    this might be more accurate than I first thought. I can't quite work the interactive feature on my iPad, I'll try again on a computer.

    You are quoting San Francisco housing costs....central California is about 4 hours from there and you can get a nice home around 300k. I live in Northern California, 2 hours from the Bay Area, I make 77$ an hour on swings, fully benefitted. My mortgage is a whopping 290k.
    Can't justify other states because my cost of living is quite similar to what I've seen in other locations, but the wages are not.

    This is awesome and very helpful. It looks like for my degree, years of experience, and where I live, I make a few thousand more than the average you found as my base pay, and a whole lot more with the overtime I rack up. That makes me feel better about my pay.
