  1. need to put cost of living in these equations for each area. what they are paying doesn’t always mean much if the cost of living is high.

      that’s so true, because cost of living upstate cost a lot, which will only make you break even. I live in the south and my family live in Connecticut and I was checking on lvn pay which was like 20/hr but you can get that down here too. so whats the use of moving.

    Looking for RN position in home health management, nursing home management and I will consider working the floor in a hospital (only 8 hours experience).

  3. patricia george says:

    Definitely relocate!

  4. Having read this I thought it was rather informative.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy
    to put this content together. I once again
    find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
