I'm an RN with 2.5 years med-surg experience, and have recently started in the ICU. I plan to have 1.5-2 years ICU experience before moving to Hawaii.
My husband and I are making changes and choices in our life now, preparing for a move in the near future to Hawaii. I am now learning of the poor job market in nursing in Hawaii, which is making me nervous. I'm curious of any and all input locals may have to offer on this.
We are open to moving to any island at first- for up to a year to get a foot in. Our goal would be to settle on Kauai. Is the job market best in Honolulu?
Ideally I would like an ICU job- but would be willing to take anything that pays >$30/hr. Does anyone know the typical starting pay range in Hawaii for a nurse with 4 yrs experience? My guess is $30-$35?
Thanks for your help!
