    I for one, will be over the moon when I finally get a nurses salary. It will be over double what I make now.....I see the light I see the if only I could keep working as a CNA that would be ideal!!

    I was happy and sad at the same time. I was happy with how much I was making...but then I was sad with how much is being taken out for taxes and for health that's over 540 being taken out every paycheck. *deep breath sigh* more you make the more is taken out.

    I was living in Chicago. I paid my rent, bought groceries, and bought four rolls of el tokens. The rolls of tokens were $10.00 apiece and that was a major expenditure! While I was at the bank, I also bought three rolls of quarters so I could do laundry. I also bought cat food and litter for the cat I wasn't allowed to have by terms of the lease. Dull, huh?

    My reaction was ... Well, I could have stayed in my mgt position in retail for this. I had no idea how much nurses made until after I graduated. I have friends who are bartenders that make more than me.
