    All those apartments you listed are older apartments and the arbours on sonnyboy lane is directly in the "hood", along with wellington arms. I would say that briarwood on olive rd is the nicest out of that selection you posted. As well as jasmine creek on 9mile rd. It's worth it to spend a little more and live in a nicer side or town and a nicer apt.

    I am interested in this too, as I am a mil spouse heading that way later in the year. I've read horror stories and will be taking a massive pay cut (-$16 less then I currently make)...... I'm almost contemplating doing something other then nursing for the time we are there. Although Florida is a beautiful state and I am looking forward to the warmer climate, this is really going to axe our budget and lifestyle.

    Any difficulties for experienced nurses finding work?

    As a new grad, I know pay is around $20-21/hr plus any shift diffs. (Hospital jobs). Pay in the area is low... And I don't think the cost of living is much less than other areas. I just moved from SW florida, and its no cheaper to live here. It is beautiful, and I do love it here! It's tough to get a job as a new grad... Not sure about exp'd nurses.

    MrsP, do you know about how much LTCs pay?

    I don't know about LTC. I know I applied to every open position in LTC and never got a single call.

    Hi MrsP, RN. I'm also looking for a job here in pensacola. I applied to several hospitals and nursing homes and still got no call from them. How's your job-searching? Are you employed now as nurse?

    psychRNflorida As a new grad I am having a tough time finding an entry level position-does Baptist hire new grads?
    I am trying to be proactive and get my info out there. . . it's not been easy. Good luck to the re-locators. I couldn't imagine living anywhere other than the beautiful gulf coast.
