Inland places like Fresno and Roseville are on the Kaiser Northern California Contract. You can get a home or condo for less than 100k in Fresno and still get paid like you work in San Francisco. That is not right. My friend that works in a wine country Kaiser says they (not the union but the nurses within the union) want those who live in lower cost of living places to get off the Kaiser Nor Cal contract. However overtime more people are going to the capital for the lower housing cost and will eventually drive up prices just like Oakland. Might be better to stay united than divided. Best scenario would be to give premium area pay diff for working in the Bay cities.
2000 a month for 1/1 in San Fran? Like let me burst your bubble. Try 3400-3700. I won't even take a travel assignment in San Fran.
No offense meant, I meant it would be interesting to differentiate between people who tried it and "did not have my good fortune," and people who are too afraid to try anything like that and are quick to say it can't be done.
As others have alluded to, housing is crazy expensive around here and I didn't realize how far people are willing to commute to work until I moved here; some people I've talked to will drive as much as 2+ hours one way from the more "affordable" areas just to work in the Bay Area.
NO. Find another avenue to explore and you will be happier.
BSN is not a joke. Someone should have told you not to waste your time with an associate's degree. Get the BSN and move on with your life. A lot of classroom work does not directly apply to many many professions. Ex introduction to music for a information technology degree. We all have been doing classes that are either boring or something you can never see applying in your daily life since grade school. If you don't want to get it, find a job that does not require a BSN. However they probably will sooner than later.

Thank you for your response! So if I apply to California jobs with a New York address will they still consider me? Also I wouldn't mind working in a different type of facility such as doctors office or long term health facility. I just really want to move to California as a new grad if possible of course
Get hired on as a weekender and do that for 6 months then go PRN. Yes, no life but in the end you will have what you want. No one said it was going to be this hard but it will be very hard.
nothing wrong with pcu.
I make 42.00/hr in Tampa Florida on days. I work in Pacu.
