I'm a philly RN that is looking to relocate in July this summer to CA. By July I will have 2 years of med-surg experience under my belt. I want to work in the ICU. I am unsure as to which city to reside in, what hospitals to apply to, which hospitals offer tuition reimbursement for NP degrees?
1.) Which city/location(s) in Cali offer the most competitive salary for a first level ICU nurse?
2.) I don't mind commuting to work via train. Which towns near San Fran offer cost of living for a 1-bedroom?
3.) What are some reputable hospitals that have outstanding ICU's?
Thanks for all your advice and time in addressing my questions!!!
