I am not sure of this topic. But wondering if anyone can tell me what are the salaries for RN's in California. Secondly, is it advisable to use a agent to get a job. Thirdly, with so many advertised positions for RN's is there a shortage of nurses in the industry. If not California what is a good place to move to in the US. 4thly do hospitals recruit directly and allow you to do the NCLEX once to reach the US, but then the NCLEX documentation takes time, how do they wait so long or go about it. Is it worth moving to the US from Australia. I cannot find a single agent here who hires people for US since there is a shortage here itself. Its just that my kids like the place (US) CA. I am in a predicament should I move to the US or not. Personally Australia is a great place to be. But, I want to see my kids happy. BIG PREDICAMENT.
