Hi, My name is Mike and I just recently became an RN. (July 20) I was a LPN for over 5 years. I currently live in Cleveland Ohio. One thing I was wondering is how much do new grads start at in Houston? Also do the hospitals there hire new grads? I currently work for Heartland and plan to transfer there just until I can get into the hospital. I really want to get into traveling nursing but I know most agencies require at least 1 year hospital experience. Houston will be a big move for me especially since I know absolutely no one there, but I'm 24 and just want to live life and take some chances. So with that being said I also wanted to know what parts of Houston are nice and affordable to live? All responses are welcome and thanks in advance!
