I'm sorry no one answered you; I'm sure you're here by now, but in case others are interested....
Disclaimer: I do not like NM. The climate does not agree with me, among other things.
That said, I have lived in Albuquerque for over 12 years, so I have a good idea of what it is like. Here goes.
The climate is considered "lovely" by many people. There are not 4 distinct seasons here. Winter is very mild. Spring involves A LOT of wind (be prepared for an April filled with days of 40+mph winds each and every day). Summer is hot. To me, the best season is fall. Not so much wind, temps in the 80s. That is ideal.
Because of the climate, outdoor activities can be had almost year-round. (And definitely year-round if you're intrepid.) Biking, hiking, camping -- it's all available through most seasons. The mountains are a mere half-hour from Albuquerque, though they're not as nice as the mountains of Colorado, IMHO.
Cultural activities abound in this city of half-a-million. There is live theatre, arts. The only thing lacking is a major league sports team. That said, an individual who commits to the area would not be lacking in social activities.
New Mexico, in general, is a very (very) poor state. However, the economic aspect of Albuquerque is all right. Housing is fairly expensive, with decent homes running approx. $250,000. I know that's not expensive compared to other areas of the country, but it's expensive compared to what Albuquerque has to offer. Also, this is a military town. If you have issues with the military, Albuquerque may not be for you. Kirtland AFB provides a major economic impact to Albuq, in general.
Albuquerque is one of those cities that can be negatively described as having a "small town" attitude in a large city. Often, the politics here make no sense. If you can live with that, then you will enjoy Albuq.
As far as nursing goes, there are three major employers
: the Presbyterian system, University of New Mexico system, and Lovelace system. Presbyterian and Lovelace are privately-owned health systems. UNMH is the publicly-owned hospital whose health system also serves the university community. Lovelace is in disarray, and I can't recommend it. The UNM system offers a great option for those who enjoy the academic environment (interns and resident constantly circulating, e.g.). Presbyterian is, by far, the premier private system in NM. Both UNMH and Presbyterian have their good sides and bad sides for nurses. And don't discount the VA, which has a large hospital here.
