    hello,
    coming from uk its all different, how much does this equate to after tax say in a year.
    not meaning to hijack this thread....

    Hi Jake. Welcome to the US. Most Nurses here work about 40 hours a week. Maybe 36 one week and 48 the next but averages 40 hours. As far as federal income tax it's in the +/- 30% range. Most states also have state income tax. Then you pay into social security, optional company retirement etc. So I'd guess that

    hourly pay x 40 hours a week x 52 weeks a year= gross salary. Take off about 35% for deductions.

    I surely hope that made sense. Where will you be working?

    dont know where we will go yet just speculating. Somewhere hot though.
    there is not much, if any difference, between uk and us salaries after deductions and exchange rates take there toll

    I started at $7.10 an hour in 1984. I think pay has improved a bit.
