My sister is an LPN making $25.00 per hour in Milwaukee, and in Gulfport, she would be lucky to make
$15.00 per hour...an RN may make a little more.
I'm sure you will find work, just be prepared to make way less, and contrary to popular belief...the cost of living is not all that much less.

I was SHOCKED at the cost of things here on the Gulf Coast (Ocean Springs, Biloxi, Gulfport) and I moved from Palm Beach County, FL, a very costly place to live. I thought I would have access to plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and produce for a reasonable cost and the produce is costly and poor in quality. Everything, across the board, is expensive. It's like they went through the roof when Katrina happened and just staying there. Just my person opinion, but you couldn't pay me enough money to live in Gulfport. They desperately need better healthcare, but you will not be paid what you are worth.
