Salary expectations

  1. 0
    Moving from CA to NC and expecting a lower pay rate but what's the average going pay for an RN with a little over a year experience in Onslow County area? Sometimes applications ask for salary requirements and I don't know what's reasonable to ask for.

    Thanks!

    I already did that. I was wanting to hear from real people. Hoping someone will log in and give me some feed back.

    I don't know any specific figures for Onslow county, but, in general, you will find the salaries in NC shockingly low compared to CA, esp. outside the major cities.

    Larger cities and larger companies tend to pay more.

    Well, it's not a small hospital... but, it is a small town. I didn't have a choice of big or small town, since we are moving because of my husband's job. Oh well, regardless, I have a job and at least it's a good opportunity. The pay difference did shock me though.
