What is the Average BSN, RN's Salary in Northern CA? (North of Sacramento)

I have a BSN + 2years of Telemetry experience getting paid about $28.00/hr as an RN @ a 246 bed hospital

I AM INTERESTED IN FINDING OUT WEATHER THIS IS A COMPANY ISSUE OR IF A NURSES SALARY IS LOWER IN CA.

I overheard another nurse talking about how she has been with the company that we're with and she mentioned that in the 5 years she's been w/ this company she is barley making 30.00/hr.

I am just shocked by this, as I have never been paid less than 30.00/hr not even as a new grad.

THANKS

@ MandaRN94

Yeah I thought the same... Are you also located in Northern CA?

I do not know who to approach? I'm thinking I should go to my manager and then HR, but I've been told by friends to approach HR, first. What do you think?

I really like my job but if my wage isn't increased i'm considering of applying elsewhere..

Yes, my affiliate is Nor Cal. Is your hospital union? If not you can negotiate, if it is union it may be the pay scale for RNs. Good luck!

They are not union... I am unsure of what the average salary is in CA... I was making $32.00-$36.00/hr at my last job, and i've been hearing that nurses have been there for 15+ years are barley making 32.00/hr and this is in the ER makes me feel like I shouldn't even bother, but at the same time I'm bothered and do not know who to go to or how to approach the subject.

Can I come work at your clinic? LOL :)

Are you talking about Bay Area Northern California or Northern California Central Valley or farther like Chico or redding. Wide difference in pay. I'd say high $20's/hr up to over $50/hr in Bay Area..
