I'm disappointed that I'm the first to reply to your post; mainly because I have a similar question! I have lived in Raleigh in the past, and am thinking about moving back to the area (from NY). I have browsed Duke's website but it looks like they don't post salaries, unless I have missed something. I would also like to know how nurses feel about working there. I have been a Duke employee in the past (almost ten years ago), although in the research area. I can tell you that the benefits are great and I was fortunate enough to work with a great group of people! Parking can be an issue, unless they've managed to solve that in the past ten years, which is doubtful.
I am a relatively new nurse with less than one year of experience, though I probably wouldn't move for at least another year or two. I, too, plan to continue my education and get my master's a few years from now. Anyone have any input on salaries for someone like me?
