I am not in the job market as an NP yet, but there seems to be plenty of postings on Indeed for NPs in the Houston area as well.

Depends on where in Texas. Austin one of lowest paid cities around. Dallas and Houston better.

I live in Dallas, and I do think that as one of the most conservative states, I am sure the physicians will not look kindly at the "nurses" daring to come close to their medical authority. But then again, they have that right because they spent 1/3 of their lives on books and the rest on stress.

PS: I am applying to get into FNP program in Texas. My ultimate goal is to become a FNP working alongside with surgeons, hopefully assisting, and just working with other surgical groups. I hope the FNP covers that inspiration... but then again, TX being a restrictive practice arena.... crossing my fingers

I'll chime in. I've chimed in on this before so I'm sure it's all back a few pages. If you want to own your own business/office then yes, I guess Texas can be restrictive.

I practice as an FNP in a family practice office and I've never once felt restricted. I see my own patients, prescribe/treat/order til the cows come home. This "restrictiveness" has never hit home with me. But then again, I get in, get out and don't have any plans to own my own practice, etc. etc. Ya'll can hash it all again but eh, it's not a big deal.

Dallas area salaries are going to run anywhere from 85-95K to start from last surveys.

Whether or not you feel it, the facts are that Texas is one of the most restrictive states. In New Mexico my medical director loved the fact that I was totally independent and this was in the hospital, not private practice.
