    Not surveys of nurses and definitely not from the sites which require you to pay.

    The government has access to more accurate data and shows you the statistical methods.

    And union facilities pay more to travelers. And hire more travel nurses. Gotta love the unions.

    Nice! Are you in a high cost of living area?

    All of Canadia is a high cost of living area.

    That's why they come down here to shop or buy vacation homes in Arizona.

    Congrats!

    Wyoming is "home" to me. Cheyenne is... a bit flat and notoriously windy...but no tornados to speak of.


    Clean little city.


    Enjoy the area. SO much to see and do in CO/WY.

    Do you have mandated safe staffing ratios in Washington? Salary sounds good and may want to move there one day but am spoiled by staffing ratios in California
