    I have a decision to make shortly...do I leave Arizona for Colorado? I love the hospital I work for here, but that's the only thing keeping me in Arizona any longer. I've found a job in Colorado, so I guess it's time to say goodbye and part my ways with Arizona. Arizona used to be a great state to live in, and now it has deteriorated so much.
    I feel the opposite way. I live in Colorado and am dying to go back to AZ. Do whatever makes you happy.

    Really? Can I ask why? What area of Colorado do you live in?

    Why? I just love Tucson - the culture, the diversity, the beauty, the events, the people, the feeling of community, how it's a big city that feels like a small town, the desert, ahh...my heart is there. I just feel alive there and I don't feel happy where I am. I live in southern Colorado.

    i'm from southeastern utah on the border of colorado, and totally relate to you on this. although i live in the phoenix area, i absolutely adore tucson. i would never be able to go from tucson back to s.e. utah or s.w. colorado.

    I would love the chance to go to AZ. Im from NYC and the job market is horrible!! What would be my chance of getting a job in AZ...new grad 2010? Also, how would you rate the cost of living?
    Thanks!

    Very tough job market here for new grads. There are still grads from 2010 that have not found jobs. If you have experience since graduation, it may help some. Cost of living is ok. I hear ya, though. Relocated from MI 4 years ago. Love it here!! Make sure you have a job before you move. Good luck!!!

    If you're a new grad, do not move to AZ unless like the other posters have stated ... you have a job offer.

    Did you go to nursing school here or in Michigan? I am also from Michigan, and I moved out here to AZ to take a teaching job. I decided I hate teaching, and am doing the nursing program in the fall. Did you work as a nurse in Michigan? I want to move back to MIchigan once I finish. I know Michigan has such a large number of hospitals compared to AZ, so I am thinking my chances of landing a job there might be better than in AZ. What do you think?

    I did my pre-req's in MI and nursing school here. Don't know about the market in MI...few friends say it's tough there too. Good luck! PCH is hiring according to a friend that works there.
