Age old question, but I will ask anyway.
I am an RN with 11 years CLINICAL experience. I am most likely moving my family to Northwestern KS (Hays to Colby area) in 2-3 years.
I am currently making $31/hour here in SE Washington State working for in a Cardiologist office. I have settled with the fact that I am likely not going to see this much in pay but would prefer not to see too much of a pay cut?
With my lack of Med/Surg Acute experience I have found that many facilities are less likely to hire me, thus I may find myself doing trial by fire, working for an agency?
Thanks for any help and insight!
I agree, we lived in Kansas for 20 years, then went to California, and now I am in Oklahoma living at our retirement home. With experience you can find a great job, lower pay , but much lower housing costs. Our home in Kansas is leased out. We don't pay 4,000 for both of our homes together...Now Oklahoma has a low pay...lower than Kansas. With experience though you should start at a higher rate...
Wow, I want to move to Kansas! I live in a decent house but my mortgage is $4,000 a month!
It's not a mansion, just a regular-sized home in the DC area.
