My wife will become an RN next May and we will evacuate this eskimo climate that is called "Minnesota" soon afterwards.
She only wants to move to Southern CA, while I think the $600,000 average new home price tag there is too much
to choose that area over Florida, Dallas, or even Hawaii. (We have a 2 1/2 year old boy and an 11-month old baby boy so that is a big factor in deciding where to move)
Does anyone know of a website that simply ranks the average RN pay based on location?
I just found this info at Salary.com.
Median Pay, RN in Oncology:
San Diego $51,493
Bradenton, FL $45,744
A nice typical new home costs about $250K in Minnesota, and in most of Florida, and in the Dallas area. There are no affordable nice NEW homes in Honolulu but I'm more willing to sacrifice housing standards for Paradise-Hawaii then California. Weather is perfect to me in Hawaii. That is Heaven on Earth.
I don't know if this is accurate from Salary.com. If anyone knows how better to research this info or has any additional info on nursing pay and conditions in the San Diego/Carlsbad area, please let us know. Even housing or location info is helpful.
(P.S., it's been 45-50 and rainy or cloudy for 5 straight days here, and it is almost June. Who built this place? Santa Claus?)
