I may be moving to colorado springs in the summer and i am just wondering if anyone can tell me how the nursing situation is?? The pay, the nurse/pt ratio, is it team nursing or primary?? My bf will be attending college, and i will be the only person really making any real money. He may have a part time job. I have been a nurse in Louisiana and currently in TN....the pay is not that great, but the cost of living is low. I have been checking, and the cost of living is fairly high there. As a nurse, i have made roughly $16-$17 dollars an hour plus any diff. Usually averaging $35-$38 thousand a year. Soooo....how does this compare???
