    Most jobs are in Ft Smith, Fayetteville, and Little Rock. Avg pay for LPN is $13 hr. Avg for RN is $25 hr. I know a few RN's that make about $30 hr in a specialty area. A few LPN's make $16-$17 doing hospice.

    There is a state income tax. Low property taxes offset this. Real estate is reasonable.

    I live in North Central Ar, and the New Grad RN pay starts out at $17.85 hr. I do not know where it goes from there. Good Luck. I love AR. myself.

    Quote from military spouse
    Would love to hear about your transition to AR! I grew up in Fullerton, followed military hubby for 20 years, now looking for a reasonable COL with inexpensive houses! My sister bought a $569,000 50 year-old rancher in Placentia, close to Kramer. Crazy!:spin:
    Wow! I grew up in Fullerton also! My husband and I moved to Arkansas Last year. And I know exactly where Kramer st. is. Placentia is a nice city and 569,000 really isnt too bad for a beautiful Ranch style house. Did you end up moving here to Arkansas??
