Try this one where you can get inner value of the text:

var content = "<p>Dear sms,</p><p>This is a test notification for push message from center II.</p>";

var text = $(content).text();

You can strip the html for rich Text field using stripHtmlTags(htmlInput) Or you can apply regular expression to remove html tags.

for e.g String target = someString.replaceAll("<[^>]*>", "");

javascript :- var target = str.replace(/<[^>]*>/g, '');
