- Mar 6, '10 by JDougRNCaffeineRX- COME ON UP!!!! It's beautiful up here! We just hired a girl from NYC, who is moving up here to get away from the city and take a job. The more the merrier! I'll be happy to introduce you to the wonders of "Cow tipping", and "Snipe hunting"- two things you just can't do in the city!

- Mar 6, '10 by JDougRNWell, the hospital I work at is union- I believe it is the best paying of the hospitals in our area. Decent benefits, pay rat I believe starting out without experience is 22+ Shift differential.But the cost of living in much better here than in NYC. You can buy a VERY nice house for under 100k- most of the time for much less- We have HUD repo homes for under 20k that are nice- Look up real estate in Utica or Mohawk Valley, or Rome- you would be amazed. AND- they most certainly do hire Excelsior grads

- Jun 10, '10 by StrawberryBananaWow JDoug, are you serious? Is it still like this? I also live in the metro area and I am DYING to get out. Although I never had upstate NY, in mind, it does sound nice . Just curious...how much could a new grad RN, from Excelsior, generally expect to start at? In NYC, I heard the average, now, is around $30-33/hr...but the prices are just insane here and the quality is going down the drain. I would love to live somewhere beautiful like upstate.
- Jun 10, '10 by sunrockWell upstate is 27/hr with 2 yrs. RN experience. That is 1 and a 1/2 hrs. from grand central. Albany is 22/hr. so there, send me a private email and will give further info. an EC grad myself. Less cement than new york city, and more trees LOL.
