Moving to Az, thoughts on the market?Register Today!
- by 2csmom Apr 28, '11I recently got a divorce and feel like I should come back to AZ. But I'm getting scared, I haven't lived there in 6 years and understand the job market is a lot different now.
I have been a nurse for 4 years, so I feel like I have adequate experience. I have my BSN and working towards my MSN as we speak. I have endoscopy, med/surg/, and oncology experience.
Anyone have any insight on the job market? I was told no one will even consider me until I have my license. So mailing out my application today.
What is the going rate for RNs?
Just feeling things out.
Thanks in advance
- May 1, '11 by jratclifGreat questions. I recently moved here and have been trying to find out how to get my license transfered. The state board site has nothing that I can find.
Maybe someone can answer both our questions.

- May 9, '11 by MsBruiserAs an experienced nurse you shouldn't have as much trouble finding a job as a new grad. Hospitals tend to pay anywhere from $28.00-45.00 an hour. Not too shabby for AZ! With your education you should be quite competitive. The only hitch - AZ made deep, deep Medicaid cuts. How that plays out in the job market I don't know...apply to Mayo. They love BSN/MSN and don't take too much Medicaid. And they are hiring...
