Hey All.... I am uprooting my family from California and moving to Texas in the Spring. Kind of nervous about this move but it is in the best interest of our family. I have been an RN since May 2008 and have worked in L&D, postpartum and an outpatient surgical center in PACU. I have applied for my Texas temporary license and am awaiting confirmation. I have applied to jobs and sent out 22 resumes by mail. So far no luck with anything. I am even starting to consider getting a traveling assignment until I can get a permanent job.
My question is what are the best hospitals/ surgical centers to work at and how much is the average hourly wage in the area? I know that I most likely wont make as much as I do here, but I want to be prepared in this move. Any tips or suggestions on landing a good job there?
Thanks so much,
