I am curious about Denver, CO. I just impulsively booked a flight on one of my stretches off, considering that it's only going to cost me $150 round trip!
I've always wanted to live in Colorado or somewhere mountainous and I had long hoped for that during nursing school. Here I am almost 4 years later and still in the plains of Texas.
-Specifically about being a nurse in or near downtown Denver versus say surrounding cities of the metro area.
-I'm always curious how the structure of other cities works because I find Houstons is different than most. Houston is the "main" city, then you have all your suburbs, which just create a never ending metro area. I mean it's MASSIVE. It can take up to two hours to get from one side of the metro to the next! How is Denver structured?
-Hiring chances with my stats? I'm a Medical ICU Nurse with 4 years experience by the time I'd be applying. I have my ADN but working on my BSM. Also plan to have my CCRN by the time I move (but not my BSN)
- Average for a nurse in the 4 year range experience? I currently make about 43 dollars an hour with my differential.
-What's cost of living like for a nurse? Can you enjoy a quality life their with your earnings?
If you could comment or PM me and fill me on Denver, I'd be ecstatic.
I took the first step and it's actually visiting! Here we go!
