I am from NYC planning to relocate to KY as soon as I sell my home. I am a nurse, therefore finding employment should not be difficult. My greatest concern is my 11 year-old son who is handicapped (Cerebral Palsy). I have heard that the Jefferson county school system is the best in the area. I would like to live in a neighborhood where shopping is nearby and where the area is more suburban than "city-like". My preference is to remain in Jefferson County. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you were to look at a map of Louisville - with what you have just described - anything on the outer 'ring' east and south will give you what you are seeking.

I just did a google search - 'Louisville Map' - and it brought up everything - you will see the circle I mean - which is actually the watterson expressway. That is the first area - then the next outer circle would be the Gene Snyder Freeway.

Depending on exactly what you are seking - the map should give you a starting point. If I were you - knowing what the procedure currently is for hiring in the area - if you are even thinking about moving - go ahead and apply to Norton Hospital System, St. Mary's and Jewish Hospital System, and the Baptist Hospital System.

It takes a little time - as all applications are now submitted on line. You may also want to check out 'mycareernetwork'. Many emploers in the area have switched over to it in lieu of Monster and Career Builder.

I have worked in the medical field in Louisville for years - and it's just not like the old days when you could stop by HR and fill out an app - such a shame - but that's the way it is.

Good luck - hope the map helps - and Louisville does have one of the Best Cerebral Palsy Centers for peds in the country, along with the Kosair Hospital System, too. Good choice.

Take care. Kimmiey
