questions for Nevada nurses

  1. Hello all you Nevada nurses (especially those in Las Vegas and Henderson)! I am an LVN in South Central Texas and have been one for 7 years. My husband and I are considering relocating to Las Vegas or Henderson but want to get as much info as possible before making a firm decision. Here's where you come in!
    I have a couple of questions I really hope you can answer or at least point me in the right direction. Although we've searched the web and found some great info, there's nothing like a firsthand point of view to clear things up.
    How is the job market for LPN/LVN's over there?
    What is the average pay scale?
    How is the electric situation--do you guys have blackouts because of California?
    How is the cost of living?
    Tell me all about living there, even if you aren't originally from there. We are native Texans and love our state but have fallen for Nevada. Seriously considering relocating but don't want to make a terrible mistake that we'll regret. So, if you can help me out with info--I'd really appreciate it. RN's or LPN's --doesn't matter who answers--I'd like to hear from you all. :chuckle
    I put a post on the LPN's only website but no responses. Thanks for taking the time to answer!!
