hey , was wondering if you know of hospitals in tulsa that match your current salary or come close to it. For an RN moving from another state like NY making $37/HR 3YRS experience?
With 3 years of experience, you are unlikely to ever earn $37 hourly in Tulsa. You are even unlikely to earn $30 per hour. Sorry, but it is an area with a very low cost of living, so the pay rates are going to reflect that.
Why would they pay you in the $30s per hour when they can find a local nurse with 3 years of similar experience who would happily work for $23 hourly? They're going to go with the nurse who will work for less, especially since Tulsa is a city with several nursing programs and a continual supply of new nurses being pumped into the local job market. This helps to depress the wages being offered. If you do not like the wage being offered, many other nurses will take it in a heartbeat.
I know of someone who was earning $36 hourly, but she has a MSN degree, 38 years of experience, and works the night shift.
