    I am certified and on the teacher's scale so my salary is the same as a teacher with the same credentials.

    In the UK new grad nurses get about 8000 less per year than new grad teachers (that's about $13-14,000 approx less)!!!! CRIMINAL I say - we should at least be on a par!

    In Virginia, the new graduate RN vs new graduate teacher is $40-60,000k (depending on shifts/overtime diffs). New graduate teacher makes on average $30-40,000 (Northern VA and Tidewater pay more-higher cost of living).
    Hope this helps!
