My husband and I are relocating to New Orleans in the next few months. My husband is military, Navy specifically and we are being transferred to NAS JRB New Orleans. I have a few questions since I have never been to NO nor Lousiana for that matter so hopefully someone can provide some advice and guidance. Thanks to all for your help!!
1.) Since the base is located approx. 20 minutes from downtown NO, what are some decent, safe, reasonably priced neighborhoods to live in? We will be living in an apartment prior to purchasing a home.
2.) How has the atmosphere, environment, economy been since the devastation of hurricane Katrina? Is it even safe and acceptable to relocate to NO?
3.) I will be a transferring LVN from Texas, How are the job prospects for LVN/LPNs?
4.) What are the pay rates for LVN/LPNs in New Orleans?
5.) What is the cost of living like there?
