Why is that NC nurses salary is so low for such a high cost of living area?!?! I'd take a major pay cut if I move back down there!!!

Not sure why the RN pay in NC isn't that good. Chapel Hill has always been a more expensive area to live in. Most of the nurses who work in Chapel Hill do not actually live in Chapel Hill, because they can't afford to. The RN pay range is about $25-$45/hour, but even the most experienced nurses (30-40 years) don't make more than $40/hour. No BSN differential-no certification differential-crazy parking issues-clinical ladder that isn't really a bedside nursing clinical ladder (it's a management ladder, and they make you do a LOT to earn it-basically submit a small book) People seem to be nice, but.........

This is true, but if you plan to continue your education, NPs make competitive salaries in NC with the rest of the east coast USA. If you work for Duke, they reimburse 95% tuition.

the clinical ladder at Duke can be bedside. Getting ready to climb last rung. It is not difficult to do. It is compiling information of achievements (I am my specialty certified, BSN counts, but I have a MSN too, be on a committee, not too bad). For a CNIV, I have to do an outcomes-based project. Nothing fancy. 

Duke paid for most of my MSN

There are great benefits at Duke. I love my job there. I have not worked at UNC, so I have no perspective with which to comment on. I know that this is an area with fine hospitals that continue to grow. 

Usually, if the pay differences are too great, we get "market increases".
