Hi all,

I'm planning to move to San Antonio by mid year. I was just wondering how well an experienced registered nurse would got paid. I currently live in Columbus, GA but am desperate to have a change of scenery. I hear a lot of good things about San Antonio and Texas in general. I hear there is still a strong job market even though we are in a recession. Any input would be greatly appreciated... Thanks

My husband is a nurse and used salary.com when he was comparing figures. Definitely get paid more in Austin, Dallas, Ft Worth areas, thought the cost of living is much higher. A few friends we have who are in the field and live in Arlington claim its well worth it though. I dont know what your wife's experience is but typically the wage is around $50-$55,000 a year here in San Antonio. If she has a speciality I imagine that number would increase.

Thanks adtobias,

That looks very promising and very inviting. I have already checked out a map with the hospitals and there seems to be a good number of them in SAN ANTONIO. I was wondering, is that figure 35-42 hr as a part time, pier diem or fulltime?

Thanks

Ok thanks a lot for the info. It looks as though the wages are about the same as here in Columbus, GA which is good as I'm really looking for a new place with a bit more excitement to raise a family. I've always heard Texas is such a great state to live in and have been planning to make the move this year...
