My wife and I are currently living in Kansas, hate it and have always wanted to relocate to Montana. She is finishing her bachelors in Health Care Admin. and I can do a little bit of everything; anyone that could give us a little assistance, or advice about opportunities and housing would be greatly appreciated. We share the attitude, survival instincts and work ethic to become true Montana residents.

Most of the health care related jobs are in Billings. I would suggest you start with Billings as a place to visit and research.

Actually, any of the larger Montana cities should have a fair selection of health care jobs. Billings would have the most, because it is the largest city and has a proportionate number of facilities, but health care is one of the few fields with job potential throughout the state. In addition to Billings, Missoula, Bozeman, Great Falls and Helena would all be good places to look at.

The state is so large, there are big differences in landscape and weather, especially how much severe, sustained cold, and deep snow each town gets.

If you already know that you want to live in the open plains, look mainly at Billings.
If you want to try living in the mountains, be aware that the higher the elevation, the harsher and longer the winters.
Bozeman has a higher elevation than Missoula and has a bit longer winters than Missoula. Billings is more arid and has milder winters than western Montana.
A trip to visit both east and west parts of the state would be advisable.

I would also recommend Billings. It is a working class sort of town but there are lots of professionals as well. I think the cost of living is also a bit lower than the other major cities. The weather is more mild and Billings serves as a hub for the state.
