You really need to think of other things when looking at which state to live. Weather, crime, what you want out of your move, lifestyle

Some states have really bad winters, very cold and a lot of snow. Others get no snow and was but have hotter summers.

When you find the state, would you let us all know? Also it must have nursing openings which is getting harder to find.

The places that have opening usually don't pay well and have horrible work conditions.

And right now most of North America is a deep freeze. It is -3 degrees F. Try going is a sub zero freezer and see how long you can stand it.

I think we'd all like to move there!

:yeah:

Each state has their own good points as well as bad points. There is no one that is all for everyone. Also depends on what you actually like.

Do you like the ocean or are you happy with only lakes? Or not even any body of water around.

Big city or small town?

Large hospital or small community facility?

Uusually where the higher pay is, the other expenses are quite high such as housing costs and food.

Do you drive or will you need to use public transportation, such as bus or taxi to get to work and to do your shopping?

Texas seems to be a good choice.

Dallas in Specific, Job market is good, and the reports in the Texas Section seem like nurses are having no problems finding jobs.

Houses are fairly cheap, Cost of Living is fairly cheap.

Applicaiton to BON is fairly easy, and requirement seems easy to me.

You could stay in Dallas, a couple of year, and since the airport is a major Hub, you could explore other cities in USA and see what you like.

Many options and places to live in USA

If you like nice weather most of the time year round, come to Los Angeles. Also, it is more diverse here with many people from different race, ethnicity and nationality. The only drawback is the higher cost of living expenses and housing. Renting a bedroom apartment can cost somewhere between $800 to $1600. Good luck moving!

You forgot about the part that almost no hospitals there are going to petition for a foreigner at this time. CA has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country. And new grads that actually trained in LA are having problems finding that first job.

As well as the fact that it takes longer than one month to get NCLEX results and the other that CA does not issue a license without a SSN#. Much has already been written on this very subject as well.
