    I've thought about moving to PA but the pay for RN is very low. I believe CA and NY are the top paying states for RN. I don't mean to brag and please don't take it wrong but I have 2 years of experience and I get over 100k. But then again, living expense in CA is high.
    Even though you may make over 100k you are not living any more different than nurses getting paid less because wages are adjusted according to the high living expenses of CA and NY

    WAG you are getting less than 60K? the thing is, we are in a depression right now, and have been for your entire working carreer. the only way to leverage up in such times is the same used in better times. you need to hop from job to job every 2-4 years. each time you do you should get 10-20% differential, and may top out within 3-4 moves making 130-150% of what your more "loyal" classmate is making at the same job they graduated into.

    abandonment is the most powerful tool we have in any relationship, whether business or personal. to use it best, you "kill the chicken to show the monkey" (shā jī xi hu, in chinese pinyin). leave an unimportant job on your own terms and clearly for personal advancement and growth and HR people in later, more important jobs will know that you are not to be low balled.
    I am making below 50k! I have thought about switching jobs, but L&D jobs in PGH are few and far between. I really don't want to move to a different specialty because I love L&D. But I also love being able to pay my bills... Lol
