Hi all! I currently live in Austin and would love to start and raise a family here but I want to know what to expect if I stay here. I've read that new grads make around $21/hr, but what have yall experienced after 2-3 years, 5 years, 10 years? I'm comfortable with the cost of living here and will have my BSN. Also how often to do you get pay raises and how can I move up quickly? I'm also considering going to midwifery school after nursing school but I'm not sure if its a good investment living in Austin. Thoughts? I appreciate all your help and thank you in advance! I'm looking forward to joining the nursing front in central Texas!
