    Why wouldn't this cost of living hack work for California?

    Live in Sacramento. Work in Sacramento. UC Davis pays good. Kaiser Sacramento pay is equal to pay in Bay Area. It’s the same contracts. Getting a job in kaiser Sacramento is the hard part. Probably have to start in San Francisco. Maybe look wat UCLA per diem pays I think around $90 now

  4. I believe you. I have had to fight for black patients to receive pain medication when they needed it. Example 1. A guy had an above the knee amputation. He was black. He was restless in bed. I look to give him something for pain and the only thing he has on his mar was Tylenol. WOW!. I went to the intern and said he needs dialudid now. “Intern asked me do you think he’s in pain. I asked him do you think having your leg amputated doesn’t hurt? It’s a major surgery.” He smiled and chuckle and ordered the man pain medicine. He’s leg was cut off about 8 hours ago and nobody seemed to care to ask him if he was hurting prior to my shift. He was restless in bed.

    Nurse Practitioner (Mother) leaves 21 month old in car for 8 hours

    Did I turn off the oven before I left for work or Did I lock the door. you go back and the oven is off and the door was locked. You don’t recall doing it. Hell I put something in the oven yesterday and thought my significant other did it but I did. The difference between me and the NP I actually questioned myself and sought reaffirmation. There has been times when I didn’t always check the lock door and kept going. That didn’t involve human being or pet being ok. I don’t buy how you miss the baby when you look in rear view mirror

    I’m not understanding this response. Hater talk to me. Y mention your job, your pay, your exp is adding what to this thread? Why was that significantly import to include. Northeast is full of snow crap weather for like 8 months a year. Texas weather is unbearable. I think the the thread needs to be shut down. Too many negative comments. You all need to be more happy people are actually making money in nursing.

    Dallas I’m guessing. At least that is where my friend was. Houston pays good. Austin does not, Toooo desirable

    I don’t think the poster intends to keep working like she does forever. She’s just sharing how a new nurse can roll in money. a friend once worked in north Texas. She worked for a health system that sounds exactly like the OP. She was per diem 35 an hour did some nights and weekend for differential 42. She would get 10 bonus per hour. Then they would offer automatic OT 1.5 pay regardless if you have only work 12 hours. $78 an hour. Same incentive were offered to staff rns. texas pay is not the best or worst but u can find system that offer really good pay and benefits. . A new grad making 93k In Texas is far more impressive than anything in California. Not sure why CA RNs are posting due to you having a higher taxes, rent,or mortgage. CA nurses, Texas has no income tax.

    San Diego Job Market/Cost of Living

    try kaiser. per diem requirement is easier.. i would think their per diem rate is the most for the area. Secondly I would probably consider UCSD. Its good to get in either system. Kaiser recently opened a new facility in SD.

    Just good to have a fall back and the rising cost of living.
