I am thinking of moving to OK, I have a Masters degree in Health Care admin and looking for a friendly not too expensive low unemployment area to live.

I was considering Tulsa or OK City, Any one have any ideas which would be better and if you pick OK City is Norman the place to be for lower crime? I need to be not to far from my work which would be call center supervisor or perhaps a hospital or just a secretarial position. I never got to use my degree yet so why start now? lol

Im 56 years old. thank you any help would be appreciated, oh and i like to be in an urban or just outside urban area with shopping, stores etc.

Tulsa is a prettier city, IMO. I lived there for about a year when I was a kid. However, OKC is a much larger metro area, and would offer more employment opportunities, including the presence of an Academic Medical Center.

Both cities are much nicer than most people give them credit for.

We moved to OKC last winter. It is growing like a weed. Expensive as in cost of living? That depends on you and your needs/wants. Have you considered visiting?

I like both cities, but I think I'd prefer OKC.

Both OKC and Tulsa are relatively inexpensive and have low unemployment rates, Tulsa's is slightly higher at 4.3% compared to OKC's 3.7%.

The OKC metro has around 35 hospitals and is also home to the Oklahoma Health Center, a 325 acre complex of buildings of healthcare, research, education, and technology.

It's nice to see someone asking about Oklahoma City or Tulsa for a change, rather than for one of those little remote towns.
