I moved to Calgary from BC about a year and a half ago and I absolutely love it here! I am single and had absolutely no problem meeting friends. I actually find the people of Calgary to be very friendly. I have only been to Edmonton a handfull of times but I found it very dull. Calgary has a lot more to do in my opinion. The night life is fun, lots of awesome biking trails, tons of festivals, stampede, concerts, and Banff is only a short drive away! Its really great to be able to get out to the mountains on the weekends. There are several major hospitals here and all of them very nice in my opinion. There are a lot of postings for both LPN's and RN's, especially now with the new hospital opening. Maybe you could visit both cities and make a decision? I think if you did so you would choose Calgary for sure :) Especially if you are from Toronto. I lived in Vancouver the past 3 years before moving here and so I enjoy the urban lifestyle and to choosing Calgary over Edmonton was a easy choice once I had seen both cities. Calgary won hands down.
