Hi I am new to posting been reading post for a couple days and I am concern about the pay rate for experence nurses in texas. I moved from Il and now live in Corpus Christi. Looking to reenter nursing after a year break from case management. I went online to see about getting a Texas lincense and they want $174. I was making over $25 hr in Il and from the post it looks like I would have to take a pay cut here. I thinking on moving back to Il. But I love the beach and warm weather. Can anyone help.
