I am currently working in DC area at a government hospital. I want to relocate to Atlanta. I am researching pay in that area. I know I'd be taking a pay cut but want to minimize how much considering atlanta average rent is now 1480ish according to curbed. Are you finding that nurse pay is keeping up with cost of living in atlanta? I have friends down there complaining that cost of buying a house closer to the city is ballooning and they are having a hard time. Also what are some of the best hospitals down there. by the time I move I'll have 4 years experience.
