    And some states do not have income tax. Texas and Nevada are two.

    You could google to find the others.

    I did get an email from a recruiting agency. They were offering about $80,000 for travelers.
    Where can I get info about LPN to RN programs in HI? I have searched but mostly find only BSN programs. I don't quite have that much time right now.

    I have heard that there is a severe nursing shortage in Nevada, so although there will be more $$$, what about the working conditions?

    Maybe you should post this in the NV nursing forum and see if anyone can tell you more or less how nursing is over there

    travel to hawaii and make extra money? i think not! the cost of living is so high there that you will soon find out that the income pays for your living expenses, and not much more. food, gas, and everything else are very expensive. color me...been there, done that!
    i can vouch for that! i went to hawaii as a travel nurse years ago, and it was very expensive to live there. the best part of the entire experience was falling in love with the man of my dreams. he was great while we lasted. hmmmm...wonder where he is today. :uhoh21:

    If your original license is issued in one of the 18 compact states, all other states in the compact recognize that license. For example, a nurse whose original license was issued in AZ (a compact state) moves to TX (another compact state). That nurse does not have to obtain a TX license because both are compact states. If same nurse moved to Michigan (non-compact state), s/he would be required to obtain a Michigan license because they are not in the compact. Make sense?

    Hawaii is lovely, but the cost of living is very high... That $60K won't go as far.... A state with no state income tax may be a good idea...

    Thanks for the information. I don't think it is Montana either. I saw an ad on the internet for an LPN job in a state psych hospital in Montana offering LPN's $10 something an hour.

    Hi,

    We have been seriously thinking about moving to Oahu. We have friends that just move there recently. I live in CA and am use to paying too much for everything.

    What is the wages for a LVN. Do the Urgent Care's hire LVN's?

    Anybody do Massage Therapy out there?? Are they strict with a license for Massage Therapy. I was also thinking about doing the chair massage.

    How are the elementary schools on the westside near Makakilo??

    Thanks for any help.

    Last time I heard...Connecticut was the highest paying state in the country. Cost of living is high though. Good luck
