Just to let you know, BSN nurses typically make none or negligibly more than any other RN for bedside positions.

Thanks for info :)

I also heard that nowdays hospital prefer BSN over RN .

That's true, but it is heavily dependent on where you are, and market conditions at the time of hire.

there is no standard in the USA. Here in rural Texas it fluctuates greatly, depending on need. Right now we are paying new grads (no experience) $22/hour, but many mature nurses here earn up to $40/hr. The average 3 bedroom 2 bath house is about $150,000. But in Houston the pay is higher and the living expenses are higher. One thing to consider: RN's here earn a little more than most people with an associate's degree (2 year) in other industries.

Exactly. Here in California alone, starting salaries vary widely. I am a new grad, and I've seen hourly wages anywhere from $20-70. I think this question is far too broad for a simple answer. One could spend a lifetime trying to compare and contrast wages and cost of living and researching different cities and countries. Look beyond simply the salary for places to go. You'll also want to take into consideration the job market. San Francisco, for example, has very high wages, but it's also one of the most competitive markets in the US, with an extremely high new grad RN unemployment rate. The state of CA has a 43% new grad RN unemployment rate for the first 18 months, with higher rates in cities like that. It would NOT be ideal to move here based on salary alone.

To work in Canada you have to have a BSN. Also keep in ind that you cannot compare the pay between countries without considering the cost of living.

Thank you all .
