Looking to relocate

  1. Hello,

    I'm looking at relocating after graduation and I was looking for information about San Antonio, DFW or Houston and specifically Level I Trauma Centers. I want to go into Critical Care (or possibly ER/Trauma) and then eventually I'd like to look at pursuing CRNA. Any info about the cities and specifically the hospitals would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks,
    bryan

    It depends on what you like!!! I lived in San Antonio and practiced nursing ER/trauma nursing in a level one trauma center. I would compared San Antonio to Dallas/houston as cost of living low, less traffic, with more hispanic flare. Salaries I hear are better in Houston and Dallas but the cost of living is way higher. The ER that I worked for receives trauma/medical cases from all south texas, is a 604 bed hospital and has about 70.000 emergency visits per year. Also, they have three ICU units, MICU (medical ICU), STICU (surgical trauma ICU) and transplant ICU. I think they pay relocation, I'm not to sure about this.
    PM if you have specific questions
    good luck
