So I cannot find a job, thinking about relocating to TexasRegister Today!
- by lampost20 Sep 12, '11Been a RN for two Years, and recently and stupidly made a move to Nevada the unemployment capital of the US at a strong 19 % (including the 5 % that have given up or not eligible for unemployment) So I am thinking of relocating yet again to Texas hear it is booming out there, can anyone verify or deny this. FYI I am a Psychiatric Nurse.
- Sep 12, '11 by neonurse97Yes, it's booming if you don't mind a job in retail, fast food, etc. Finding a job in nursing will be difficult. Good luck to you!
- Sep 12, '11 by RazzleNdazzleI'm Ohio, but....wouldn't you just apply there first before relocating and crossing your fingers? I've heard that about Texas before but have no hard proof. I always hear the south is in more need than the north.

- Sep 12, '11 by RazzleNdazzleMy suggestion is start travel nursing. There are companies that have people go all over. If you already have experience (1-2 yrs from girls I know) then they could hire you within weeks. From the sounds of it you are already traveling/thinking of moving/willing to move again. Hit up the agencies. Make a phone call and they'll call you back right away.

You could move to the panhandle of Florida and work with me The guy I work with now is retiring on Sept. 29th and his position will then be advertised. You have to be an RN and have psych experience to get it. It is a prison job but awesome benefits (state job). I love it!
- Sep 12, '11 by lampost20Which City in Florida? I have no family so all I do is Travel.
- Sep 12, '11 by nola1202I Love Texas and it's huge so there has to be a nursing job out there somewhere That said, I love Pensicola too. It's about an hour and a half
from New Orleans, and not far from Mobile and close to other beaches
like Fort Walton. The area has a lot of military bases.
On a lighter note, my friend moved to Arizona where she works as she
puts it "Scary Tuscon" (Sierra Tuscon) It's psych nursing for the rich and
self-paying, often demanding, used to hired help type. Mostly she says it's ok, but she just went PRN with a big sigh of relief. She says the full-timers have a lousy deal so far as scheduling and get floated frequently.
I know you'll find a job, you deserve a good job.
