Florida bound?

  1. 0
    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???

    Thank you for the information, John! No, I haven't even been to Pensacola to visit...yet. Right now I'm "seeing" Florida through the eyes of others who have been...kind of an interesting approach. I know I want to be back down South again (am originally from Texas)...am in desperate need of warmth, sun, warm hearts of the south,....did I say WARMTH AND SUN???!!!
    Another area that a coworker suggested exploring is Port Orange area. She said there is alot to do there, cost of living is good, beautiful beaches.....I feel like a kid in a candy store with all the possibilities. Again, I appreciate your insight...thank you!!
