Canadian RN Nursing in California?

  1. Hi!

    I am a nursing student in Canada (Vancouver, BC), finishing up my final year of BSN. I have thought about it for awhile now, and I am really interested in travel nursing. I am specializing in Emergency nursing currently, and have a job lined up in local ER, and orthopedic surgery.

    I would really appreciate some input as to what nursing is like in California (LA, or San Fransisco area).

    Sorry about the list of questions, I would really appreciate any and all input!

    Questions pertaining to Travel nursing in California:
    -If you have done travel nursing, what was the experience like? How challenging was it to secure a position?
    -How did you get started with travel nursing (years of experience, specialty)
    -Where did you travel nurse, and how lucrative was it ($$)?

    Questions for LA/SF nursing:
    -What do you enjoy the most about nursing in these areas?
    -How is the job market? Housing situation?
    -How available are opportunities for advancement in nursing with further education (with Masters/PhD)? (Teaching/Research/Entrepreneur opportunities)
    -I know no one in LA/SF, what's scene like on making new friends?

    Thank you so much for reading this post!
