She should be fine anywhere in NY. Computer Engineers should be good as well. There are companies in Upstate NY like Lockheed Martin, Syracuse Research Corporation and others that could work. This may help too: Central New York Jobs

New York's Tech Valley

Both professions are in very high demand in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Indiana has a major presence in the medical field establishment
The Indianapolis area has IU Health and Riley Childrens Hospital network and Wishard memorial health which is getting a new facuility next year thats state of the art.
Cost of living in Indianapolis is the lowest of any major US city and 20% below the national average. Plus we have the nations most affordable housing market.
Technology wise there are many startups that have just recently made IPOs in the Indianapolis area.
a few that come to mind are ExactTarget, Angie's List, Also Alison Transmission just made an IPO a few weeks ago.
Hoosier hospitality also is amazing and everyone is very friendly here
The thing i enjoy most about Indy is its location. Its within a days drive to 75% of the US population.
Chicago/St Louis are 3 hours away and Cincy is 1.5 hours and Louisville is 2 hours.
Also this year we hosted Super Bowl 46 and there is already calls for another bid in 2018 or 2020. Which would make Indy the FIRST Northern city to be on the Super Bowl host rotation list.
Not many places get to host the Super Bowl and i have to say Super bowl 46 was a blast so much to do.

Healthcare is an Indianapolis staple but at times can get saturated but for the most part she should be able to find good work esp. at a place like Riley (hard being a nurse there when it comes to sick kids). Computer Engineering is pretty broad and spans multiple job categories. Anything specific? You may also be able to work remotely depending on what you do.

Michigan seems to have a constant growing healthcare industry most anywhere in the lower half of the state so I'd expect it'd be quite easy for your wife to find a job.

Computer engineering is big for the auto industry, but there's also non-auto industry related IT growth. Twitter just announced that they're opening an office in Detroit, and Google has an office within the metro area and in Ann Arbor. There's also a few small IT companies located in Detroit that have moved in recently and will surely grow into the future.

Texas, specifically D/FW & Houston.

You may also find the Austin area of interest however nurses don't get paid as much there & cost of living is the highest in the state though nothing like you're used to in Cali.

Moving from California I'd say Texas would be the easiest state to adapt to since both share lots of similarities & differences.

Nursing is big almost everywhere. It is a growth profession due to the aging of the population.

Computer technology has been growing in many areas, but the Bay Area of CA, and the Seattle area still are the leaders.

Which states are good for nursing can be looked at in different ways, depending on what's important to you: Ease of obtaining a job, best pay, best nurse to patient ratios, etc. Experienced nurses can find work nearly anywhere, while new grads can have trouble finding something in some markets. The areas with the best pay usually come with a higher cost of living (i.e. CA), so that's something to weigh, also. A lot of nurses take jobs as travel nurses, to allow them to investigate areas without committing to them, long term.
