Hey everyone! I am currently a nurse in NC. I have decided to make a life change. I've always wanted to live in California and so I've decided to take the plunge and go for it. Can anyone shed some light on nursing in this state? I have heard it is quite different than here in NC. A little about me I have been a RN for 6 years. I have my ADN and BSN. I have been a med surge RN mostly, but the last two years I have been a resource RN so I work in all departments except ICU. I go where they have a need for that night I work. I have been a charge RN pretty much everywhere I have worked and previous clinical supervisor. With my experience what are the the average pay rates for nurses in CA? I'm just trying to get an idea of how much I would be making so I will know how much I would be able to afford as far as a home, etc. Thank you for any info you can provide.
