My husband and I are highly considering moving from NY to Cincinnati OH for a better quality of life. Our biggest concern is the job market. He is a senior unix admin and wants to know what the job market is like and what the salaries range from. Do you think Cinci has a strong job market and will continue to grow? For me, I am a registerd nurse. I would like to work in a hospital that is highly respected and has a good reputation. Also any info on salary would be great!!! Thanks for your help!

I can't tell you anything about salaries, but there's a great demand for nurses in this city and my DH says IT guys can usually get work here as well. We have several good hospitals and not all of them are in the urban core. In fact, the newer ones are in the suburbs. As for quality of life, I think the northern suburbs of Cincinnati are a great place to live, raise a family, get an education, have a career, and live your life in a safe environment. Except for the winter weather, which probably won't bother you since you're from NY, Cincinnati is an ideal place to live. Welcome! (BTW, we have affordable housing, too!)

I have nurse friends that work at Good Sam and at Christ; another friend just got a job at University Hospital. They all seem to enjoy their work, supervisors, benefits, etc. Don't know much about their specific salaries, but while they're paid decent wages living wage, salaries likely will be lower depending on what part of New York you're from. But the cost of living may be lower as well.

Lots of IT in the area - many fortune 500 companies, large hospitals, etc.. -- all of which need IT support.

Salaries reasonable, depending upon the employer. Perhaps not as high as NY - as their may be some cost of living plusses there?

Cost of living (housing) much better here. Food (grocery stores) a little high, but probably lower than NY.

Welcome to the area!!

Nursing jobs are plentiful, you will definitely not have a problem. IT really depends, since your DH has a background in UNIX, he should be okay too. As far as nursing salaries, it depends on if you go to a hospital or thru an agency, you will also get shift differential if you work 2nd or 3rd shift. Of course the pay will be lower than you probably are getting in NY, but trust me, you will more than make it up in housing, property taxes, insurance, etc..
