Hey guys I have a question regarding working in NJ or NY. I'm currently living and working in NY right now but I'm getting married to someone from NJ. Can anyone tell me about the salaries in NJ compared to NY? I dont want to lose my union benefits but I'd also like to know if the commute time is worth it from NJ to NY. Any answers are appreciated!

-Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. What hospital are you at? 35 seems a bit low. Is this day or night? When I was a new nurse in NY, I started at 45/hr. Do you guys have good nurse:patient ratios? Ours is terrible. We often have 6-10 pts a shift in the ED.

I worked in a ER in Elizabeth, NJ and the starting rate was 40/hr for nights and 38/hr for days. It was supposed to be 6 pts but it hardly ever stuck to it. It was a tough job with a ridiculously high turnover rate.
