Sounds like an adventure! I am technically a "new" nurse, graduated last May, working in southern AL. I have some older kids who moved cross-country. If you already signed a lease, so be it.... but if you have not, try finding an Airbnb close to facility so you can learn the area and not be locked into a lease yet. Obviously, only take what you need, look at the local thrift stores when you get there or find something that is semi-furnished. Learn to live lean. Seattle sounds fantastic. You will love it! Good luck. Work hard.
