Two words "Back woods" NY is one of the most advanced states as far as nursing and education go, I was VERY surprised, at least in the hospital I chose, I am finding myself exposed to policies and practices that were outdated 10-15 years ago! There is no organization and the pace of life in general is about 20 times slower than I am used to!! I got upset when a stat order took 1 1/2 hours to carry out and I was given a printed policy that STAT means within 1 hour!! Can you believe that? Other than that, the weather is great, and the change of scenery is great, but i'll be glad to leave.
Depending on where you are in Fl., it can be "Back Woods" and then it can just as easily be "Snobby City" or whatever you might want to call it, just depends on where you are, who you are, what you want, and what you expect.
Traffic is horrible almost anywhere you go, especially when the "snowbirds" (I have more colorful terms for them) are here. The school system does suck here, Im glad I dont have kids and if I did I wouldnt want their primary education to be completed in this state. A little advice though, when you live here, everyday life is NOT a vacation. A word on the beautiful Florida Keys...if you dont drink, party, boat, fish or dive...DONT go...you will not be happy there.
