My husband and I are thinking about moving to the Boise, ID area and I was hoping to get some information with regard to nursing salaries, RN to patient ratios (if they even exist), and what the overall opinion is about working as a bedside RN in the state. I am currently an L&D RN in Northern California and love what I do! I would definitely be seeking a job in OB if we decide to take the plunge!! Any advice and/or info would be so greatly appreciated!! 

I'm from the Boise area and you are going to tKw a significant pay cut. Idaho pays nurses terrible. If I were you I would consider getting a job at West valley in Caldwell, they pay about the best wages. The other two main hospitals in the area do not pay very well and have a lot of politic issues. Good luck!
