Hi, I am stuck between the Naples/Ft. Myers or Tampa/St. Pete areas. Which area has the best job market and cheapest rent?? I take care of elderly people (assisted living, home health, nursing homes) My husband is a welder (not certified). I will be attending school for nursing which ever place we move to. Is it really as bad there as here in Michigan?? There is NOTHING here.

I think Naples is more expensive than the Tampa Bay area. If you are in any kind of health care you should be able to find employment. Not sure what the pay scale is where you are now, but just working in nursing homes the pay will not be much more than min wage unless you have a license of some type

Sorry can't tell you about welding.
