I have worked there; it is a suburb of Denver. There are a lot of oppourtunities in the area (as you can tell from the paper). The Denver Post has a very good job oppourtunities section that is user friendly. There is the Post and The Rocky Mountain News.
I worked tele/m/s etc there as an Agency Nurse. Good money for sure but houseing is very expensive. Sorry to not have housing figures cause I stayed with a dear friend who had a gorgeous house in Lakewood; I think it was in the area of $250,000. The newspapers have great online options.
My friend swears by the school system in Lakewood. Are your children school age? I would not recomend the school system in Aurora; it is most likely overcrowded. I would imagine a commute to the community is not difficult from many areas. Certainly, I commuted within a 40 minite drive from Lakewood.
The one facility in Aurora I remember is an HCA facility. I am NOT a big fan of the National Chain but their wages are good. I jokingly call their Agency, "All About Understaffing".
I prefered ST. Anthony's, in particular, the facility in Thornton, Co. The management was pleasant and reasonable. I do have a soft spot still for facilities that are smaller and more personable.
I hope that helps for starters. Let us know if you have any other questions.
