RN from cali, single parent of teen. Want to start over in a place where it's diverse, friendly, good paying nursing jobs, and some kind of laid back recreation. Can anyone tell me anything? Best neighborhoods, cost of living, and so forth?

Thanks

By SinCity I assume you mean Vegas. Just type in the key words into the search above and you will get hundreds of answers good and bad, mostly bad. Good paying? Normally no. But you did say Nursing. There is a nursing shortage here as well as good Doctors. Make sure you search well. Some Hospitals are offering very very large sign on bonuses.

Ask yourself this first: The AMA ranks Nevada dead last in nearly every catagory in health care. Do you really really really want to be associated with that label?

Even our own Governer and Mayor goes to Southern California and Phoenix when they need any medical care beyond a band aid. What does that tell you?

Centennial Hills is a pretty nice part of town to live in. Since you're in nursing you shouldn't have a problem finding a job at the new Centennial Hills Hospital that'll be opening early next year.

YOu do have this ability to see things that have never existed...here we go again...

"The AMA ranks Nevada dead last in nearly every catagory in health care.'

Cite a source for this bit of absolute untruth. You just make up this garbage as you go along don't you? Sheesh. Anyone who believes the writings of this guy should have their head examined.

The valley is a great place to work, for anything medical. You'll find plenty of job opportunities, and the costs of living here are still lower than in CA.

Centennial Hills area is nice; also look at Summerlin and Green Valley.

I scoured the AMA Web site and have found no indication that the AMA is in the business of ranking state healthcare systems. Their news section does report rankings from other healthcare-related organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Commonwealth Fund, and provides links to these studies.

The reports are not in the least as cut and dried as our specious Sheriff would have us think. Here's a link to the Nevada page of an interactive map for a study discussed by AMA but done by the Commonwealth Fund:http://http://www.commonwealthfund.org/statescorecard/statescorecard_show.htm?doc_id=495871 (broken link). Our overall ranking per TCF is 46--not good but not last. Given that--ahem--it's a LANDLOCKED DESERT out here, we're doing well. California is about on a par with Nevada. Their overall ranking is 39. The upper Midwest (e.g., Minnesota)and upper Northeast (e.g., Maine) ranked as the best, and the lower Midwest (Oklahoma) and the South (Mississippi) ranked the worst (with OK and MS ranking the lowest).

Still, because RESEARCH takes time and mine is limited, I wrote to the AMA to ask them to clarify whether the organization itself ever does such rankings, etc. If they reply, I'll report it on the board. Here's the AMA link that is the source link for the foregoing:
http://http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/category/17873.html (broken link)

Sheriff strikes me as the type of person who has been maligned in some way (either real or imagined) and simply cannot process the incident and move beyond it. I think such a person is potentially dangerous; the sort of person who "goes Postal" and does harm to others and/or tries to drag others down with him or her. I also find it suspect when a person makes pronouncements of the sort that Sheriff does but then hides behind a screen name. Just my opinion, of course, though I do wish Sheriff would focus her attention elsewhere.
