And too what is the average salary and/or hourly rate for a nurse of my experience?
Nursing is rough right now as far as finding work if you dont have much experience. A year of exp will probably still leave you in the new grad category as far as most hospitals are concerned. If you are really interested in working in Atlanta, I would secure a job BEFORE the move.
As for salary, depends on where. Each hospital system seems to have a different payscale. With your experience I would expect somewhere around 25/hr, give or take a few dollars, adding whatever shift differentials apply.
