South Florida suck. I lived here all my life and I am a nurse as well. I been an RN for 2 years and it was extremely tough for me to find a job in the hospital. I had to settle for psych. I been applying to hospital jobs for the longest and not one interview.... As far as living.. I live in Margate which is north broward... I actually love it here. Good schools, great residential area, I live in a 1bdrm and pay $900. The cost of living is a little up there but if u are in a 2 income household you should be fine. Do not move to Miami. Good luck!!
