I was just wondering if anyone has an idea of how much an RN, on the average, earns in New York (doesn't matter which city) as of 2011. From the gross income, how much is deducted by tax? If not the actual amount, then can anybody at least give the % of tax deduction?
Also, I'd really appreciate it if someone can give me an estimate of the expenses (cost of living) for an average person in NY. I'm very economical, so I don't spend a lot of money on unnecessary things. For housing, a small studio apartment rental would be enough. Does anybody have an idea how much rent for this would be? How about expenses for food?
In short, I'm actually aiming to know how much a person would be able to save up when everything has been subtracted from his/her earnings.
I'm very interested to hear about what people would be able to share on this topic. Thanks.
