Hi I am wondering if you all would share what your income is (hourly and annual), including your years of experience and specialty (unit of hospital, clinic, or other). My husband and I are both RNs (BSN) and we are planning to relocate to Albuquerque in a year from Northern California. I am originally from there but I left when I was 18 and now I am 35. I visit frequently but visiting in vacation mode is different from living there as an adult with 2 children and making a living there. We make decent money here as RNs and can afford a nice home. I have having a hard time getting a clear picture of how much RN's make there so I can appropriately plan on how much of a house we can purchase and where exactly we want to live in Albuquerque/ lifestyle. Thank you :-)
