    Hi-
    I can try to help- I have lived about 15 minutes west of Denver for pretty much my whole life! I am not an RN YET but will be someday. As for life in Colorado- most people really enjoy it here- the weather can be a little crazy sometimes because one day it will be snowing and the next day it will be sunny and about 60 degrees. Traffic can be a pain sometimes depending on where you are commuting to. Denver doesn't really have a mass transport system- although they are building light rail throughout the city. Most traffic is during the usual rush hour so if you have to take highways 6, I-70, or I-25 S/N.. yea there will be traffic, but it is not as bad as California! The cost of living has definitely gone up but it is not too bad. There are nice condos and town homes that are not too expensive. And it really depends on what area you want to move to. I actually read on MSN a nationwide survey that said Denver is one of the safest cities to live in! And whenever people come to visit they always say "how clean" our downtown is. There is a lot to do if your are an outdoor kind of person- great hikes, skiing, parks. Nightlife is alright- most places close at 2am. Another interesting thing- The entire med/nursing school is moving to the city of Aurora and The Childrens Hospital will also be moved around 2007. Housing in Aurora is pretty cheap right now but will probably go up. There are tons of hospitals around Denver and from what I have seen a LOT need nurses. If you want to ask anything else I will try to help- good luck- what kind of nurse are you? Where do you live now?

    Yes, winters in Colorado can be very cold. Sure the temperature can go up to 60 degrees F one day, then you can have two feet of snow the next.
    Remember that most of Colorado is mountainous so you can expect wide temperature variations.
