Hello, I was wondering if any of you can help me with some info regarding salaries for new RN grads. I am planning to move to the Bay area (around san francisco or maybe silicon valley area) end of 2007 or early 2008. I am not graduating with my bsn until May, however I am already an LPN and will have at least a year of experience working on that level. My question is, what is the usual salary for new RNs in that area? I know that cost of living there is a bit higher than other cities, but I would like to know if I (as a new RN) would be able to make it on my own financially.
Thank you for your time.
