    Houston pay?

    Prn jobs in Houston can pay about $45-$50 an hour. If you didn't need benefits, theoretically you could come close to 6 figures if you had a couple of prn jobs.

    Work and pets?

    I have a dog walker who comes to let my dogs out mid shift. If you can find one in your area, I would highly recommend!

    Sign-on Bonuses Are Alive and Well

    I can't speak for the specific departments that are hiring but I know several people who have been at Methodist for years. They have been very happy with their experience.

    Sign-on Bonuses Are Alive and Well

    I know a nurse with two years of experience (experience not in the specialty she was hired for, no sign on bonus) who was started at $31/Hr plus diffs for weekend, evenings and nights.

    ICU Burnout

    If you don't feel supported and staffing is dangerous change hospitals. I actually changed states and found a dramatic increase in pay, quality of management and staffing. Not all ICUs are like the one you describe.
