You guys need to get to southern california-I can't believe they only pay RNs 18.00 an hour in NE. I make 20.00 as an LVN and plan on 85,000 dollars a year when I graduate next May!
Thanks but no thanks. Although the pay may be more elsewhere in the country, so is the cost of living. I live in the middle of nowhere. This town has MAYBE 200 people. My 5 bedroom house cost us $9000.00 5 years ago. It is older and did need repair, but in Cali. it woulda been ALOT more, like over 10x more. Land out here sells for about $1000-2000 an acre. If I want to go hunting I just start walking with my gun out the back door.
My kids school has a student to teacher ratio of about 15:1. If one of the kids is doing anything wrong (smoking, drinking, drugs) I will know about it the next day or sooner.
I love it out here and I wouldn't have it any other way.
On the other hand, if I were single with no kids--maybe.
