You might like Grand Junction. From what I`m told, Mesa State has a good nursing program. It`s a smaller college and it`s easy to get around campus. Check out the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce and check out Mesastate.edu

I have two views of Grand Junction. Admittedly, I've only stayed there for a couple of days, and it is a nice town. But to me it seems very isolated.

I will tell you that a former boss of mine was the superintendent of schools there and raved about what a wonderful place it was to live.
