Should I leave California for Nevada?

  1. 0 I was strongly considering leaving California to go to Nevada. The main reason I wanted to leave was because the new homes in many parts of Las Vegas are beautiful and very affordable compared to the homes in Cali. However, I am now thinking about unions (I dont know if Nevada has hospital unions) and the almighty California nurse to patient ratio laws, which I know Nevada does not have. Now I am thinking of staying right here in Cali. I am confused and need insight and input from Nevada nurses. HELP!!!!!

    We do have union hospitals in Vegas. There are union payscale posters posted in various public locations. If you work med/ surg, ratios are usually 6:1 days and 9:1 nights. Sometimes an extra patient is pushed on to you. IMC can vary but I hear mostly 3:1 or 4:1. Critical care mostly 2:1, 1:1, or 1:2 depending. Cost of living and traffic are lower but so is pay compared to Cali. New grads in my hospital start at $27 and change / hr on medsurg.
