I am interested to see how many local nurses left Hawaii and moved to the mainland. Local nurses = born and raised in Hawaii, went to nursing school in Hawaii, or anyone who has spent a significant part of their life in Hawaii.
When did you leave Hawaii? Why? Where do you practice nursing? Would you ever move back to Hawaii?
-I left Hawaii in 1998.
-I left Hawaii because I got patriotic and joined the US Air Force as a military nurse.
-Ive been working in military hospitals in CA, Germany, and FL.
-Would I move back? YES! The pay has improved in Hawaii and its time for me to move home. Although housing is little extreme right now, its time for me to return home.
