New Mexico’s ancient-yet-living cultures, awe-inspiring landscapes, uncharted outposts and authentic characteristics have made it a haven for nurses who enjoy outdoor experiences and the arts. It’s a place where simple activities become life-altering experiences. New Mexico is the place to live for adventures steeped in culture while pursuing the dream job of being a nurse in the U.S. 

Cost of Living:

If a nurse wanted to rent a 3-bedroom house, it would cost $1,181 on average per month, while a mortgage would cost $1,060 for the same house. Financing a car in New Mexico would cost on average $508 per month. The average food cost per person is $400 per month. Therefore, a nurse who commutes to South Dakota will roughly spend between $2,000-$2,500 per month on housing, food, car upkeep and other essential expenses. Nurses placed through Adevia’s program can expect to net $4,200 a month, allowing them to cover their living expenses comfortably and still send money home to the family.


New Mexico has a wide variety of educational services, ranging from preschool to college education. The average private school tuition in New Mexico is approximately $600 per month whereas public schools are free. However, if your child would attend a public school, parents usually pay between $50 to $200 per month for stationery, after-school activities and other necessities for education.


The state of New Mexico has a large number of quality hospitals. The Presbyterian Hospital was ranked the top hospital in the state of New Mexico. The state’s major hospitals include Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, Acoma-Canoncito-Laguna Hospital, and the Advanced Care Hospital of Southern New Mexico. 


New Mexico’s inspired landscape includes painterly skies, snow-like drifts of sand and the Rio Grande’s true blue. This state has soaring mountains as well as Blue Hole, a 24-meter-deep, crystal-clear pool. Nurses can attend the famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta where they look or go into a hot air balloon. New Mexico’s majesty offers nurses horseback riding, skiing, cave hunting, hiking or healing mineral spring soaks year round.


New Mexico reflects an unspoiled landscape with museums and galleries that showcase Native American culture. Nurses can attend events like the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow that introduce ancient rituals and ceremonial dances to the uninitiated against the backdrop of ancestral ruins and settlements. Towns like Taos and Truth or Consequences maintain New Mexico’s creative heritage. From turquoise jewelry and Mexican-Southwestern culinary delights to Concho belts and pottery, New Mexico has plenty of cultural offerings.
