Oh man ... I am so cramped in my short-term rental. I have a WONDERFUL roommate - but I need more SPACE!!!Here is my dilemma ...I am a travel RN in Southern California. Housing is CRAZY EXPENSIVE HERE! I am going to begin an online Nurse Practitioner program in February ...I am licensed in California, Nevada, and Arizona. Nevada is my "tax home" right now. The wages in Nevada for ER RN are around the same as what they are in Southern Cali -- about $45/hour. But the HOUSING ... THE HOUSING!!! It's about double here in SoCal. A $1200 one-bedroom apartment in Las Vegas will cost me $1600 to $1800 here!!!And the income tax!!!!I guess I am wondering if I should stay in California ... get a lease and a full-time job here ... call California home ... or go back to Nevada. I can make the same amount of $$ in Nevada as an RN - pay way less in rent and way less in income tax (there is NO INCOME TAX in NEVADA!!!)Fiscally - it makes so much more sense for me to go back to Nevada. But ... I guess I want the experience of living in California :-) It's not always just about the bottom line, you know? Just not sure if these crazy living expenses are worth it!!! Between housing and income taxes ... it's about $700 per month MORE to live here! That's just a lot, you know?
