GS-9 payscale for civilian nurses?

  1. Aloha,
    I'm interested in working on base on O'ahu as a civilian GS-9 nurse. I'm really confused about the payscale. It says it starts out at about $40,000 per year. Does this apply to registered nurses? Or, is there a sepparate payscale for RN's and physicians? Does this include housing and shopping on base? I'm afraid I could not come close to paying bills on $40K =( Also, is it difficult to obtain a position as a GS-9 nurse as a new grad? If anyone here is currently a GS-9 RN or knows someone who is, please let me know. Thank you in advance.
