Hi, my name's Kayti Brosnan. I'm a registered nurse here in Austin, Texas, and I'm going to tell you the average starting salary for a California registered nurse. This is going to depend upon where you're working -- whether it's in an urban or a rural setting -- and your employer -- whether it's a hospital or if you're in a physician's or clinic setting. The average salary, at this point, for working within a hospital setting is 26 dollars and 72 cents or a total of 50,000 dollars a year. The cool thing about California is they have really, really good nursing laws, and so every hour after an eight-hour period at work is considered overtime. And the average shift is 12 hours. So you're getting...every time you work, you're getting at least four hours overtime. It's a really great perk that California has, and I wish that they had it in the rest of the United States. And that is the average starting salary for registered nurses in California.
