Nursing opportunities/wages in New Mexico?

  1. OK.. I know there are some of you here from N.M... Rusty for one.

    Coming back from Az. this past Jan. we overnighted at a lovely little place named Socorro and fell in love with it.. Hubby dreams of retirement and the golfing there...of course the wife must continue working...

    Sooooooooo... I'm talking about somewhere down the line we may well consider this little community. A possibility.. nothing set in stone. But since we're even considering it, I thought I might start scouting around for some info on the nursing there... what are the possibilities, what's good, what's bad, what's open, what are the wages for RN, for dialysis RN, homehealth RN etc., etc.

    Appreciate any info ! Thanx !

    Is that just in the bigger cities like Albequerque ? How many yrs. experience ? Or does it matter? Would you have her keep you posted, and find out what area she's moving to and what type of nursing?

    Thanx a bunch !
