    In order to remain competetive with the rate we have negotiated , other hospitals either have to offer competitive salary or someother incentive to attract staff .

    I'm in upstate NY and yes the cost of living is higher here then some other states but downstate does have a higher cost of living. Either way no one makes that here. I agree--maybe they are incuding NPs.

    NURSES get angered about high salaries in nursing? Who are they, nuns? This profession does have some crackpots in it, doesn't it.

    Now tell me, what other professions or occupations "should not be in this for the money?" Let's list them all, right now. Just exactly who should work and not be fairly compensated for it?

    What a bunch of malarkey, "nurses should not be in this for the money." It's just another "women's work is worth less pay" message. Pay for your own training, pass a state exam to get a license, work your tail off, get exposed to all sorts of biohazards continuously, do a dirty job, and don't expect to be paid well for it?? PFFFFFT!! Should doctors, dentists, and other medical professionals also not be in it for the money?
