Well, I don't do horses, so have no real idea where to suggest looking.

But I will say... COME ON DOWN, and welcome to Texas!

You will probably be happier in a small town so you can have the horses, and many bigger towns restrict ownership of American Staffordshire Terriers.

Job market for LVNs is not as good as it is for RNs, and the pay is lower. (LVNs usually earn around $20 hourly.) Most of the LVNS jobs are in doctors offices or nursing homes. Hospitals in the big cities all have Magnet Status, which means no LVNs. You would be wise to find a job before making a permanent move, especially if you will be living in a small towns.

Texas Nursing Jobs and Careers - Scott & White Healthcare, Temple, Texas. This is a large well known hospital outside the big city. It also has ties to major university research.

Army hospital at Fort Hood, 25 miles west.

The earliest known historical occupants of the county, the Tonkawas, were a flint-working, hunting people who followed the buffalo on foot. During the eighteenth century they made the transition to a horse culture and began to use firearms. Lipan Apaches, Wacos, Anadarkos, Kiowas, and Comanches also frequented the land that become Bell County.

San Antonio has many hospitals, clinics, Dr's offices. Would reccommend living in one the out-lying
towns who also have their own regional hospitals, Pleasanton, Castroville,Floresville, and Seguin.
Pleasanton bills itself as "Birtplace of the Cowboy" and horses are a way of life for many here. There
is a Cowboy Fellowship Church here that has a big roping arena.
Welcome to Texas!
