- Jul 14, '12 by mom35Hello, I lived and went to college in Dallas and absolutely could not find a position after six months graduation. So it was off to south texas on the border for me!! Specifically Eagle Pass, TX. where they are paying me a 24000 dollar bonus in incriments every six months for two year contract. I was use to using the transit system in the Dallas area, so when I moved here without a car, I was saddened to find no bus service even. So I take a taxi that charges me 20 dollars one way!! There is a little shuttle that only costs two dollars, however they are never on time and I would have to get up two hours earlier to use it. So, just pre-plan before moving and look up Eagle Pass, TX-Fort Duncan Hospital, they are usually always hiring and may still offer bonus! Best of luck to you!!
- Jul 14, '12 by Inori@mom35 Thank you so much for sharing! I'll look em up hehe i was most happies to hear that you were able to move there w/o car .. as I have neither the monies for car nor the driving skills.
Thank you everyone for sharing your tips with me. I do appreciate your support
- Jul 14, '12 by JRichI graduated in May from a school in MN, obtained my license in North Dakota, and moved to Texas 3 weeks ago. I put out like 200 applications and got 1 call for an interview. Luckily I got that job. So I suggest just put out a ton of applications. I am just south of Houston in the Clear Lake/Webster area. The place I work at just hired a bunch of new RN's without any experience and a lot of them are ADN's (I am an ADN). Good Luck!!! I hope you enjoy Texas when you get here!
