If you like wind--and I mean WIND, cold weather, snow, some rain and big thunderstorms in summer, largely unspoiled mountains and desert nearby--with a university that has a pretty good nursing school--check out the University of Wyoming at Laramie. It has all of that.

I can't tell you whether or not the nursing school at the University of Wyoming is good, however two of my sons went to school (WyoTech) in Laramie. It's a cool little town and they both enjoyed their time there. I loved visiting the nearby mountains. We were up there during 4th of July one year - hardly anyone up there but us.

Well if you love the cold and snow and sunshine you'll love Colorado. Take a look at Denver and Boulder, some good universities in both places.

Diana, look in our Index of Threads in the Denver and/or this main Colorado forums. IIRC there are threads on nursing schools in one or both of these forums. I think the really big, good nursing schools are in the Denver area, which pretty much has what you're seeking, and enough people of Hispanic heritage to feel like home. Best of everything to you. Hu-Ah!

No kidding about that wind. When we were driving over from CO to CA the wind in Wyoming would tear the paper out of our hands and a second later it would be plastered on a building across the street. I thought it would blow us away.

Also, as long as you're from an accredited school of nursing, or whatever else you're pursuing, it really doesn't matter. As long as you graduate, you can probably find whatever type of employment you're seeking so just pick an area you like and make sure there's a state college extension there that carries your major.

The master's in nursing programs are in Aurora (CU), Denver (Regis) and Greeley (UNC). There may be some others, but there are none in Boulder.
