I often visit Santiago,DR to visit family and friends and have always wanted to move there after college. My dream is to become a nurse but I am not sure how much nurses make down there or if I can live off of the pay. I have heard that nurses don't really make a lot of money down there unless you work for a private clinic; but how would I go about getting a job at a private clinic? Honestly I am not looking for money I just enjoy the simplicity of the lifestyle and as long as I will not be poor and can have a decent house I will be happy. Also, I was wondering if english teachers make more than nurses in the DR. Does anyone know how much nurses or english teachers make? I am fluent in english and spanish if that helps. Also if these careers do not provide a survivable pay, what career can i go into that will allow me to live comfortably in the DR?
