    As the economy suffers through layoffs and wage freezes, hospitals and doctors are hiring thousands of new employees and offering unprecedented referral bonuses and raises to key staff, including $100,000 annual salaries to experienced nurses at one Boston hospital.

    Thinking of moving as current salary little less than half this amount with 25 years in nursing.

    What about cost of living??? How much different in Boston compared to where you live?

    Ack! I knew I shouldn't have left Boston!!

    BTW--It's very pricey to live in the city, but depending on where you look, it can be affordable. I had a small two-bedroom apt. for $825 near Newton (about 5 miles from downtown), but the landlord raised it to $1300 after we moved out.

    There are a lot of students in Boston, so you can find affordable places to rent. Buying is another story, unfortunately. Property costs are over-inflated.
