Aloha! Me and my husband have talked about our wish to move to Hawaii for years. Our son will be starting school a few years after I graduate from nursing, and the area we live in now has gone downhill. We live in Birmingham Alabama, and the crime rate is very scary. In the research I have done on Hawaii, the crime rates are very low compared to where we live, and everyone seems to treat each other like family. (Southern hospitality doesn't exist here anymore). I graduate with my ADN in 2012, and I was just wondering what kind of nursing opportunities to expect. My husband is also in school to be a PTA. There's a HUGE cost of living difference between where we are now, and Hawaii, which worries me. What is the average starting pay for a new nurse on the islands? I would hate to move and only be able to afford a closet
. Any info/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
