My husband recently got orders to move to LA AFB. We do not want to live on base. He heard from his co-workers El Segundo has the best school district . . . wondering if this is true? Also I am an RN currently working in an ED. I would like to continue working in the ED . . was wondering what hospitals are in the area for an easy commute from El Segundo, (I have been commuting to Orlando, which is an hour away from where I currently live now) and what is the average pay for a RN with a BSN? Hoping to rent a home with an average rental rate of $2,700 to 3,400, if anyone could recommend a rental property management company that could help with house search, (preferably reputable)

Thanks for your help.

Red is bad. Blue is good.

you should definitely be able to find something in your price range. check losangeles.craisgslist.org and search for any of the south bay communities (el segundo, manhattan beach, hermose beach, and redondo beach), all are a reasonable distance from the LA AFB and have good schools. I'm not sure about the salaries for nurses, but nearby hospitals are the Daniel Freeman hospital in Marina Del Rey and Centinela Hospital in Inglewood. I'm sure there are more in the south bay area, but I'm not sure of any off hand. There are also a few in Santa Monica (St. John's and UCLA), but that commute may be longer than what you are willing to deal with. Good Luck!

Yes, El Segundo is a very good school district. Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach also have good schools. El Segundo and Manhattan Beach are closest to the base for your husband, but the others are very reasonable also. You should be able to find something in your price range.

Nurising is also a good job here in CA. There is high demand and you have a low patient limit. I believe there are some other RN's on this board who can help with the direct hospital related stuff.

Don't mean to derail the thread, but I didn't think it was worth starting a new one to ask this question. Besides, I figured the OP may find the information useful as well.

I'm new to LA myself, and I generally hear "South Redondo is better than North Redondo."

Just HOW much better is it? From the limited amount of research that I've done, it seems like North Redondo is still where many families choose to live because it's more affordable. However, its proximity to less desirable neighborhoods like Lawndale is of some concern. Personally, would you feel comfortable raising a family in North Redondo Beach...particularly in the area north of Artesia Blvd?

Thanks in advance.

Torrance would be okay, too. Schools are acceptable. Cheaper than the beach cities.

I'd rather live in Lawndale than North Redondo.
