Hello, I am a 26 year old single registered nurse. I’ve been a nurse for almost 6 years. I am considering moving to Tennessee. I was wondering what city people recommend for nursing? Nashville/Knoxville/Chattanooga. I want to live in a rural community in the country so I know I’ll have to commute to a bigger hospital in the city, 45mins or less would be ideal. Out of the 3 which has better pay but a decent commute, also with decent housing prices. I will  also will be going back to school to get my DNP. Also any recommendations of rural cities to look into living?

 

thanks!

AN's Tennessee forum has some info, not as active as other states: https://allnurses.com/tennessee-nursing-c119/

Nashville is hot growth area with home prices soaring with heavy traffic at work drive times, from my travels through this state multiple years.  Beautiful part of US. Hope those working in area can comment on healthcare facilities.
