I realize that the move may cause a bit of culture shock, but I have lived a few differnet places in the US and would like to know more about Las Cruces if anyone is from there and can tell me about it. I have looked at several places online to get an idea, but it is always better to get a real persons opinion.
I am curious about the current job market, not for nursing I already know there are jobs for me but for my family. How is the housing market surviving there? What is the cost of living in the area? How are the schools, I have a daughter who will be in somewhere between 3-6th grade when we finally get our house sold and immigration for my husband finished (both my daughter and I are US citizens).
How hard is it to transfer a license from Ontario to New Mexico? What is the pay scale in the area, I really could not find that on the local hospital websites? Also being so close to the Mexican border how important is it to learn Spanish? I know SOME from high school but my husband knows none, and we are willing to learn if need be, just not sure how much we can get before we move.
