    Considering relocating to Houston with 8mths med/surg experience as RN and 3yrs of home health an Long term care experience, currently working on BSN. Not sure of what my chances are landing a hospital job in the houston area, any input is greatly appreciated.

    If you will have your BSN by the time you relocate, it would be a plus. Unless an applicant has 'mad skills' and experience, most larger hospitals are only hiring BSNs these days. Make sure you also have your TX license. I would suggest a broad job search - even though The Medical Center is hyped as the ultimate job nirvana, it is a difficult place to negotiate for newcomers to Houston... most find the off-site (remote lot) parking very difficult to deal with.

    Be sure to land that job before you actually move - so you will be able to make a better decision about what area to live in. You really don't want to be faced with a horror of a commute. There's a wide variety of housing available in most areas so you shouldn't have any problems.

    Good luck on your job search

    How is your search and relocation going? We are doing the same thing here, just have not completely decided to make the plung yet.
