Salary for experienced RN in Wichita, KS


I grew up in Jacksonville, FL and currently a team leader on a surgical floor. I have over 13 years experience. My husband now wants to move us to Wichita, KS (where he is from). I make very good money here in Florida and would like to see what kind of pay decrease I will experience when I move. I know the cost of living is a little lower, so I am praying that will offset the decrease a little. Any information will help (including places to live in Wichita and surrounding suburbs). YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!

I honestly have never seen anyone in Florida express how well they're paid!

I am only saying I get paid well compared to what I hear Kansas RN's get paid. And, being a team leader gives me a higher differential. Not sure how Florida compares to the rest of the country. Thanks for the information!
