I have to STRONGLY agree with Tierra399. I was raised in Wisconsin, lived in southern California during the summers for 10 years, lived in Nashville for a year, and lived in Florida for 7 years. Lots of moving but I think I am well-rounded because of it. I can honestly say it is all your opinion on what you prefer. California is too expensive and too far away. Nashville is nice but not tropical (which I like). Wisconsin is the opposite of Florida. Florida is humid, sunny all year, tropical, diverse, and promotes outdoor living. Taxes are cheaper than Wisconsin! People complain about nursing in Florida. There is no perfect place to work ok? Up here in Wisconsin there are tons of things I could complain about but that is nursing. We are helping people and when you deal with people you deal with all kinds of personalities. The rate of pay might be a little lower is Wisconsin due to the flooding of nursing students here. I would take the sunshine over cloudy, cold, dismal snow-filled days ANYTIME...I believe people in Florida don't appreciate the beautiful state they live in and how good they have it. I miss Florida terribly. I cannot wait to move back!!! And I felt the same when I lived in Nashville as well. Florida is where I call home. P.S. I am sorry if I offended anyone, this is just my personal opinion.
