    Hi Dougledavies and welcome to allnurses.

    You might get more responses to your questions if you post in the TN Nurses forum at the following link.

    Knoxville is a nice city...with the beautiful Smoky Mountains nearby. The surrounding areas are nice as well. If you move to TN and especially to Knoxville, I hope you like the color orange. Knoxville is the home of the TN Volunteers and the whole town turns orange in the fall. Of course, the Lady Vols won the National Championship this year.

    Enjoy the site!!!
