pay scale and best hospitals to work at in Atlanta, Ga

  1. Hi. I might be moving to Atlanta, Ga soon and would like to know what a R.N. with 8 years experience might expect to make. ALso which hospitals do you all think provide a good working experience. I currently work at UAB Hospital in Birmingham and like the teaching environment. Any advice on where is the best place to live and where the good school systems are located? thanks. Also is it true that it takes a while to get a license in Georgia?

    can't tell you much on places to work, since I'm just getting started. As far as schools, I can point you in the right direction for you to do your research since I'm no sure if you're wanting info on ele., mddl., or hs....here it is, and I hope it helps.

    Good luck to you, I'm sorry I don't know anything about licensure in Georgia, as I am just finishing up my degree and am learning myself. I did live and work in Atlanta for many years. Are you going to live in the suburbs of Atlanta or in town? That will depend with regard to schools and so forth. I know there are some good schools in the Decatur area, or at least they used to be.

    Anyway, I worked at Piedmont Hospital and loved it as far as good care for the clients and so forth. There is also Emory University Hospital system if you like the teaching environment. I believe their website posts what they pay as well, not sure about Piedmont. Then there is also Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, which many of my family members used and were always treated well as patients.

    Good luck with your plans,

    Alice
