In most cases 'traffic' in Maine is very minor. Not an inconvenience at all.

Though I have noticed that sometimes I now may tend to feel it is a nuisance when there is another vehicle in my lane. But really two vehicles within sight of each other, should not honestly be thought of as 'traffic'.

Since you'll be the one working I'd think You'll want to check out the hospitals. You'll be able to find a a place to live with in a short drive to any of the good hospitals in maine. Or did you want to walk to work? Maine medical and Mercy have good reputations are the biggest and in portland but and are an easy commute from Cape, scarborough, falmouth or gorham. I believe central maine med near brunswick has a good reputation. My sister works at eastern Maine medcal in Bangor and while they had a recent strike, the working conditions are good and pay (particularly for weekend shift Friday, Sat Sun 12 hour shift) is also good. There are nice nearby neighborhoods such as Orono, hamden, ellsworth and nearby lakes.
One thing you can consider is making your move in sept and you can rent a furnished summer place at a good price for the winter while you explore and find the area you like.
Good luck and enjoy your research. Also Not sure of your nursing specialty, but there are a surprising number of retirement and assisted living places up here.
