Hi! My DH and I are considering a move to the Boise area for my DH's job.
I'm an ER nurse and very much want to stay in ED nursing. Can anyone tell me about salaries (here in Chicago I'm close to $23.00/hour before differentials, w/one year under my belt as an RN).
I'd also like to know about nice places to live. We'd like to have a fairly nice house, 3-4 bedrooms on some acreage if possible, or be close enough to an area where I could keep a horse. Any areas to steer clear of?
How are the schools there? Is public school OK or do we have to think about private schools, depending, of course, on where we live.
Thanks -- appreciate the input!

I live in Nampa, ID, which is about 30 minutes outside of Boise. I would highly recommend this state. There is plenty of land to choose from in the surrounding areas. Kuna, about 20 minutes from Boise, has a lot of acreage for horses. You're going to have a hard time finding a lot of acreage with a lot of greenery around here because it's mostly desert. However, if you work in Boise, it is beautiful. Boise is known as the City of Trees.
Sorry, but I can't help on the salary issue. I'm a student at the local university, so I'm not positive on any numbers.
I am quite confident in the public school system. I spent my entire education in private schools, but I've never heard anything horrible about the public schools. Boise has many great schools.
Hope this helps a little!

I'm interested in knowing about this also. We are considering a move to southwest Idaho, and I would like to have a decent house on some acreage. I like lots of trees and greenery.

Boise is a nice area lots of job oppourtunities and good public and private schools. Land is more expensive than other parts of Idaho but is you like city life its the place for you.
