My husband is potentially looking at a job in Franklin, TN which he will be making less than half of his pay here in Minnesota. That leaves me to find a comparable job for me. I am a pediatric hospital RN here and make $32/hr plus differentials. We are also union at our hospitals here. I am looking for an updated answer on what the average pay is for RNs at the Vanderbilt Children's and also if there are other options for pediatrics in the area? I got nowhere on the phone with HR, they can only tell you pay at an interview and won't say what nurses make on average. That is NO help when looking to move across the country. Also, what are some good areas around Nashville and Franklin to live? Looking at cost of living, low crime, and good schools?
