    I don't live in an apartment, but I think Willowpark is nice off 67th street. Summit Ridge 67th/Gore. Then the ones off 82nd are new apartments, I don't know how much they charge, but it is a brand new neighboorhood over there and quite nice (St.James, Winchester). I know you mentioned St. James doesn't have anything available right now.
    Unfortunately I am not familiar with the East Side.

    you could also check out the timbers and crosby park apartments. They are both closer, with timbers being within walking distance.

    I got your message, but i couldn't reply back for some reason. Starting pay for new grads in lawton is around 18.50ish. You can live really good in southwest oklahoma for that amount of money.

    Hello SDA3694! I am interested in relocating to Lawton, OK. How has it been since you've moved? Where did you move from? I'm from South Carolina. What can u tell me about the area? What hospital are you working? Did you find the pay ok relative to the cost of living in the area? I would appreciate any feedback.

    unfortunately lawton doesn't have a ton of choices for places to work for nurses..... but at least the pay is okay for Lawton. Stay away from the southeast side... close to downtown/lee blvd/ft.sill blvd - if you're new here I would try the east side or west side. If you can't get on at CCMH or SWMC, there are a couple dialysis places that may train new grads, quite a few nursing homes, taliaferro psych hospital (small), some private clinics and urgent cares, and I heard there is a new retirement/nursing home being built out west that they are hiring for right now. The third hospital is a military hospital on fort sill, but they are federal jobs which require at least 1 year experience before applying.... but that is a great option if you want to apply later!

    Hope any of that helps.
    Good luck to you and welcome to Lawton!
