My IMMIGRATION, POE, CFO and INTERVIEW Experience

it ignores all pains...

when love is great,

it waits, it persists, and lingers forever...

"starting pay in the NYC area is $80.000 or an RN, more or less depending on experience, hospital etc."

Unless you live in NYC or are planning to move there, $80K isn't realistic for the rest of the country. If you look at the first link, you'll notice the cost-of-living makes a big difference and you're lucky if you live in Texas according to the survey.

Shows average salary not starting slary and info is from 2005.

A friend of mine (an immigrant from the Phils.) is earning $16/hr, with an MS degree in US, with 15 years of experience under her belt..

She is so underpaid. I wonder why is that.

Maybe she came here trough an agency? There are agencies who recruit RN's from around the world, but mostly from the Philipines, they pay for licensure, green card application, travel expenses and relocation but in return they take a big chunk out of their paychecks, since the RN's have a contract with the agency for about 2 years after they arrive.

Oh, wow! Thanks for the info. I never really had the chance to ask her about it. :thumbs: I might not even ask her given that possibility..

80k to start?

Maybe as Head RN,

My sister is RN she started at 45k, now she is up to 70k

and this is in NJ


Here is my story. I've lived problem free life, payed my taxes. One day I decided to marry this girl. But to do so would require her to come to US of A, and so it started. My problem free live turned in to free problems from USCIS! Sure things turned to unsure, certain dates turned to aproximation within months. All logical thinking was out the door, as I filed my papers withing famous Vermont Centre!

Hello! Are you talking 80K/month or annually? I understand for a start in the US it ranges from $18- $25 depending on which state no matter how many years of experience you had from other countries. You got to start from basic trainings on a US setting and pass the NCLEX of course.

Please try to log-in at www.allnurses.com Its a forum for local and international nurses.

Thanks and more power to you guys! :)

My ex was an RN. She worked in nursing homes all her career. The best she ever got up to was $16/hr. In our area a hospital charge nurse on the general floors will make around $25/hr. Keep in mind this is central Illinois so your area may be different.

A good friend of mine works at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. She works 3 nights a week, 12 hour shifts and then gets four days off in a row. One week a month she will be off the whole week (as her shifts will tail end each other). She gets paid around $50,000 a year, got a sign on bonus of $7000 and has been qualified for about 2/3 years.
