Thank you for contacting Just Answer. The question you asked is best answered by giving you the resources for see the information yourself. The information below is from the Occupational Outlook Handbook which is a government document updated yearly. The website where you could research more is BLS.gov. This site is the bureau of labor statistics.

( For more information about PA's) This is information about RN's from the same website as above. Unfortunately there was not a category about nurse practitioners listed. I will include more information about NP's below the summary and link.

I think you will get all the information you are looking for between these sites. As far as being specific to California the cost of living is higher in California so you could assume you would earn the top end of a range. If you are looking for more specific numbers you could visit a cost of living calculator and plug in the numbers from the sites listed above. An example cost of living calculator can be found at http://www.payscale.com/cost-of-living-calculator. This will give you more exact numbers for California. I hope I have provided the information you were looking for please don't hesitate to ask me if you need any further information. KateB
