Seattle area wages


I'm just curious as to how Seattle area wages compare to Spokane where I currently work in a skilled nursing facility. I worked with a NAC recently who is going to school here. She told me she used to work in a facility over there and what the wages for nurses were. As the cost of living is much higher there, I'm trying to figure out our budget.

This is acutally just a basic question I'm asking, no need to bag on nursing or anything else such as that. We are moving for my husband's job, so its not actually an optional thing.

I would love to work in a hospital, but accept how difficult that is to find and do not mind skilled nursing facilities.

thank you
