There are many hospitals in Denver metro area and most of them probably have a website with an employment page. I believe there are recruiters who work the medical field and you may want to work with them too.

I think Denver will work for you, but we need to better know what are you requirements (apartment, TH, SFH?) and price range, etc.

There are a ton of fine neighborhoods and most schools here are very good. Best advice we can give is to get the job first, then we can help you zero in on a good place. Many people rent here a year before buying, there is so much to see, do and learn that it's nearly impossible to buy something with so little insight into a metro area of 3M people.

You may also want to look in the index of threads, in which are listed various threads on Denver neighborhoods, many photo tours of parts of town, info on schools or medical jobs or food or shopping, etc.

-If you are open to what type of nursing you are looking for, you should have no problem finding a job in any area of the city or suburbs. You may have something specific in mind but i think the most important thing is to just get your foot in the door at a good hospital.
-Rent first and get to know the entire Denver area before you buy.

Thanks! I think I will definitely rent first until I learn the area. I am going to keep my mind open as far as nursing jobs are concerned but would really love an ER position. I didn't know if anyone had any thoughts on what the good hospitals were or ones that are located in safe/secure areas. I have never lived in a big city so I am quite nervous about it! My town is located in the sweltering midwest and has only about 35,000 people so it will be a big change. Does Denver have public pre-schools? They don't here so that would a nice saved expense!

I am one of the resident nurses on this forum, but the only hospital I have worked in is Lutheran in Wheat Ridge. It's not one of the big teaching hospitals, but it's certainly in a safe area. Most of the big-time teaching hospitals are in Denver and the close-in suburbs. The University of Colorado Hospital is in Aurora. You should talk with the career service center at your college. They could probably be very helpful.
