I just accepted an offer to participate in the new graduate nurse residency program with Versant at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL. I am so excited to have an opportunity to work in the NICU as a new graduate.
Down to the nitty gritty. I am wondering if any locals in the Tampa/St. Pete area could give me some advice regarding relocation, avg rental prices, activities.
I have a few friends and some family in Tampa but no one is living in S.t Petersburg. I know there is a lot of stuff for families to do but I am enjoying the single life right now. I am under the impression that it would be fun to live in "downtown" St Pete. Tomorrow I head back to the hospital to finish up paperwork and am going to see if they have any housing assistance / information for relocating employees.
So, any advice? Good/bad apartments? Condos or backyard cottages for rent? Better to commute from Tampa Bay or live close? I would love to hear from anyone who lives in the area.
