You shouldn't make the "good" money just yet. You need experience. It sucks I know, but you need something to back up the demand for the higher pay. You will get there though. I started at 19/hr in kansas. 6 years later Im making 6 figures, and no I don't live in California. No one should come out of school expecting high pay.

not expecting high pay, but like i said some nurses can make as low as $30,000 , where rent alone is $1000, some of the poster says they're making the same as nurses in my area but the cost of living in much lower compared to mines.
