  1. Hey guys! So I have become very dissatisfied with the hospital system I work for. Horrible benefits, lay offs, management is uncaring, etc. So I was considering travel nursing. Where I am there are not many hospital systems to choose from so I would have to drive to another outside town if I wanted to leave my current job. However I don't want to take a huge pay cut or add more stress for less money. I was looking to do travel nursing maybe 60-75 miles away each week and just get a hotel, B&B, for a couple nights or rent a small room. My current is roughly $41 an hour with a $4 shift diff for night shift. Should I stay and just tough it out or does anyone have any insight on how lucrative traveling could be compared to what I make now?
  2. Hi! 

    I just noticed that you were considering moving to California from NC. I'm  going to be moving to NC (Raleigh) when I graduate and am wondering if the job market is challenging there for ADN graduates?

      Hey Tas!  I am so sorry I just noticed this message.  I d not log in here very much.  It is not challenging however they will constantly be pressuring you to pursue your BSN.  The pay for new grads is anywhere from $21-$26 an hour.  I hope you enjoy Raleigh.  I lived there for 6 years and loved it.  I am currently in Charlotte.

  3. Hey everyone! I am currently a nurse in NC. I have decided to make a life change. I've always wanted to live in California and so I've decided to take the plunge and go for it. Can anyone shed some light on nursing in this state? I have heard it is quite different than here in NC. A little about me I have been a RN for 6 years. I have my ADN and BSN. I have been a med surge RN mostly, but the last two years I have been a resource RN so I work in all departments except ICU. I go where they have a need for that night I work. I have been a charge RN pretty much everywhere I have worked and previous clinical supervisor. With my experience what are the the average pay rates for nurses in CA? I'm just trying to get an idea of how much I would be making so I will know how much I would be able to afford as far as a home, etc. Thank you for any info you can provide.
