    I pay $390 a month for my healthcare through my employer (Aetna PPO). This is for family coverage.

    GS pay scale for government nursing jobs

    You are right.....never say never....I do live in the DC area and we employ the largest percentage of federal workers and many are concerned with the recent freeze and the decrease in transportation benefit (which was $230/month). The cost of living here is so high (so is SF) that you need every cent just to get by....

    From Nurse to Lawyer, anyone?

    Risk Management or legal nursing would be two career paths with RN-JD combo's. There is a huge glut of lawyers per se and many cannot find jobs, but I think that combination could open some avenues for you. Go to a really good law school though.....

    GS pay scale for government nursing jobs

    I don't know if you will be getting automatic step increases with the wage freeze (federal workers) which includes civilians working in military hospitals, etc... Plus the civilian transportation benefit has been cut significantly as well. Last year I was offered a GS12 at Walter Reed as a CNS (masters prepared) with ten years of experience at a salary of $86,000. I thought it was low considering I was already making $98,000 and subsequently took another job paying in the low 100,000s.
