Well, that is one great post from a discussion board newbie! I remember the first time I ever made a post on a discussion board ... I was scared to death to hit the Reply button ... now they can't shut me up!

It sounds from your post that Albuquerque might be a perfect fit for you and your husband! I hope you get lots of responses from the members here. They have so much good information, and I have learned so much from this forum.

(P.S. I am an RN too, and have been semi-retired for a few years now, but I know there is a big nursing shortage in NM, and I am considering looking for something part-time when I move there.)

Actually, fear not jar711...as a fellow (myself) who is actually fairly familiar with Omaha and who has family that lives in Omaha, I can attest that the "crime factor" in Albuquerque is actually startlingly similar to Omaha. Very similar sized cities with a similar crime situation - some pockets that are definitely rough and should be avoided, but the majority of the city very nice and very safe.

If you can hack it crime-wise in Omaha (which I believe most anyone semi-familiar with city living would easily be able to do), you'll be absolutely fine in ABQ.
