My family would like to move to Florida within the year. Can anyone give me some information about the Pensacola area? Is it a good place to take my family (I'm a single mom). What about cost of living there and salary range for RN Hospice nurse (also Public Health Nursing)? Any insight and information will be greatly appreciated!!!!
I earned my Physical Therapy degree in Mobile AL, which is about 40 minutes away from Pensacola.
I can't comment on working conditions or pay scale, because I live further south now, but can comment on the area.
It's very rural, and very much the "old south" - inexpensive, lots of really nice people, but education isn't always a priority.
With the Navy base there, there is quite a military presence.
Probably a relatively inexpensive place to raise children; couldn't speak toward the public education system there, although public education is *not* one of Florida's strong suits.
I hope this doesn't paint too dismal of a picture - it's very pretty country, and the winters are almost always quite mild. I wouldn't mind living there again at all.
Have you ever been there???
