I just obtained my RN licensure in Michigan. My mom is taking her NCLEX-RN in a month or so as well. We want to obtain a year experience in Michigan, but we are ready to get out. We keep searching good income: housing ratios around the US. Our hearts belong in San Diego, but realistically, what is it like living in SoCal as an RN or RN-BSN? We want to make good money, but also have some extra cash as well. We know Cali is a fairly expensive place to live, which we are prepared for, but it's that living comfortably in a desirable area is key. Looking for opinions from people who know or are currently living it! Thanks.
