RN Salary Survey 2013: Post here!

  1. 2 Greetings!

    After reading past informal survey posts on allnurses, I wanted to pose this question for 2013. The intent of this post to to give myself and others a good range of pay for nurses across the US right now based on experience and location. This will be an informal guide for me to start a masters paper on (Subject: area cost of living and nurses salary). Several years ago I believe Houston was voted for best place for a nurse with cost of living adjusted, but I think this might be changing.

    Things to note while reading other's salaries:
    -Generally, high paying locations relate to high cost of living (SF, NYC, etc). The reverse seems to be true as well (lower cost of living=lower pay). 65$/hr may be the norm in San Francisco, but the average 1br apartment is $2800 without parking and a house costs well over $1 million. Please take this into account. We live in a big country and cost of living varies widely (especially housing costs)

    If you post, please state your:

    1. State you work in
    2. Years of experience
    3. Specialty/unit and work setting (clinic, hospital, prison, etc)
    4. Hourly Pay (base rate) or salary
    5. Differentials (if any)
    6. Union?

    6. Union? Hell, no. I have no guaranteed hours, no paid vacation time, and no benefits (insurance, retirement acct, etc.) unless I pay for them. So those hourly rates look a lot smaller when prorated over a year.
