Hi All:

I'm an experienced RN from Seattle and I am seriously considering relocating to Austin Texas. Does anyone know how the salaries are like down there? Also do the hospitals have contracts/unions? I'm ready to give up the dismal and dreary winters here for some sun so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Todd, I work in Austin. The pay really sucks but the city can't be beat! You have to give something up in order to live here. We are lucky being nurses, can always find a job. We have 2 hospital systems here with numerous hospitals in each so you are kinda limited with "companies". Houston/Dallas has the good money but not the style of Austin. I work in a hospital that has just expanded to almost 30 suites, they are still under construction. We have a good unit, no big pressures, lots of help, etc.
