nursing student inquiring about houston

  1. im a nursing student in the raleigh-durham area and am really not excited about staying in the area despite the promising outlook. i've been looking at houston, tx or at least tx. i know responses would be based on individual experiences, but do we have any rn's from tx? what would u say are the pros and cons of workin in your general area? also, why do you love or hate texas? school districts? housing costs? thanks guys
