    I have heard the rate around here at hospital is around 20$/hr and maybe a little more for shift diff. Houses are generally 150-200,000$ so you can have that to compare to cost of living where you are.
    Yep. Just bought a house and that sounds about right.

    Me? I have 1 year experience. I was making $39/ hr in CA. I'm married so dual income helps, as well as the lower cost of living. We definitely aren't as well of as we used to be but we make it just fine. All the bills are paid, we've got food, a home and even some left over. I guess we don't have too many bills so it works.

    I have had no problem making ends meet at all. The cost of living is slightly lower, not as low as the hourly pay reflects, but I'm pretty good with money and haven't got myself into much debt so it's been fine for me. There's not too much around the area where I'm living so I spend less money eating out, or shopping because it's not as accessible as it was in CA. It's a simpler way of life here.

    Is he/she a new grad? That sounds low for that area.

    Some. I make $23 and some change, but I also work at one of the lower paying hospitals in my area. I'm geographically challenged though because my husband is military so I didn't get to pick where to live. I like my job though & nursing was never about money to me so as long as I can make ends meet, I'm good.

    Where will you be moving to?

    Most of NC is around the same..Raleigh hospitals start RN at $20-21/hour...with a portion of insurance paid..not enough..lol...the shift diff is excellent-8-15/hr...it is true..cost of living is sooooo much cheaper...Typical 3bd/2br house $150k. Very good place to be for Medicine., especially those continueing education
