But I have to go there because my husband found a better job there and already started his work. I read a lot of posts here about new graduates struggling in finding a job. I am surprised. I am in Tennesee now. I was hired as a nurse intern even in school and launched in ICU straight after graduation. My pay was a RN pay even before I passed my board. Now I am in this nice unit, with a pay rate without a benefit as >$65000/year before tax, for 40hours/week. The houses' price here is low (You can easily get a nice new house for $150000 in the best school district). The city is medium-sized. I am living so well here and hate leaving. There are a lot of jobs for nurses. MY friend who graduated after one year got a second job, then his monly pay is easily to be $6000 after tax. I like the enviroment for nurses here. I don't understand why in Boston, MA, new nurses cannot find even a job. I don't know how much an experienced nurses with one year experience will make in Boston. Could anybody here give some informaiton and encouragement for my moving to Boston? Thanks.
