It depends on where you're moving. I'm from Houston (moved to Arkansas right after nursing school for my significant other), and I have two job interviews lined up. They're not my dream jobs, but I can wait for that. It's better than if I had stayed in Houston -- my GPA is a 3.06 (and that was AFTER I brought up my grades my last semester of nursing school) which doesn't compete with my classmates who had above a 3.30 before graduating. Some of my classmates who found jobs looked outside of the Texas Medical Center (really on the outskirts of Houston) with the hope of becoming an RNII and returning later.
The nursing schools in Houston are extremely competitive, but if you can get in, awesome. That's not to disparage other nursing schools in Texas, but you get a huge variety of experiences at different hospitals (you probably would also if you went to Dallas, Austin or San Antonio). I have the not so great distinction of saying I went to 2 nursing programs (the first in West Texas, the second back home in Houston), and it seems there's a greater need for nurses in West Texas. I don't find West Texas that appealing, and when I didn't go back, I regret only that I didn't graduate earlier. That doesn't mean you won't find that part of Texas nice -- it's just not my cup of tea.
And what HouTx said is true -- we don't have a lot of social assistance compared to others, and as for the tuition, I only went to public universities, and somewhere in the middle of nursing school, I started paying the full price of tuition (I was passed the cap of hours the state allows for in-state tuition). I think I paid maybe a few hundred, maybe at most $1000 more, but considering the amount some of my international classmates paid, I'm not complaining (it wasn't that much of a difference that I could tell). At the same time, I lived at home, and I don't have a family to take care of.
