I am trying to figure out the compensation differences LA or OC vs Bay Area. I heard a lot that there is a substantial difference in pay, but what are the real numbers? I am ER RN with couple years of experience.

I work for Kaiser but not as an RN (yet). I know as an RT pay in SoCal is the same per our union rules. We do have Tech 1, 2, 3, and 4. I think the same is for in NorCal but NorCal gets paid more than SoCal.

I do not work at Kaiser but their RN payscale is online. I couldn't find their 2018 numbers but in 2017 an RN staff nurse 2 with 2 years of experience was making $67/hr. Staff nurse 2 with 5 years is $75/hr. Staff nurse 2 with 31years of experience is $81/hr. Evenings is 11%, nights 17.5%, weekends 10%.

Hi Joe33, is this for the LA area?

Also, where did you find this data as you did a better job than myself in finding it? Thank you.

The above entry is for Northern ca, I found on the nursesunited website when I googled it. The address is nursesunited.org/assets/PDF/Kaiser_contract.pdf.

Southern ca contract I found by googling the following words: kaiser contract Southern California payscale and it was the fifth entry down, squarespace pdf.

For southern ca, for 2017, it is 52.50/hr for staff nurse 2 with 2 years of exp, 59.70 for staff nurse 2with 5 years, 65.88 for staff nurse 2 with 10 years, and 71.02 for staff nurse 2with 25 years of experience.

Be aware that kaiser cuts your experience in half when giving you credit. Example: 6 years experience they put you in the scale for 3 years experience. I was offered to transfer from kaiser nor cal to so cal and was quoted a 25$ an hour paycut. The Kaiser's in so cal have different contracts which isn't doing them any favors.
