We have had it!

  1. i am not going to bore you with all the details, but we are ready to move. my husband & i are ready to move basically anywhere in the u. s. our only preferences are:

    1) not in tn
    2) have a major league baseball team nearby
    3) have a women's health nurse practitioner master's program nearby
    4) be a great place to raise a family

    some of the places we are considering are oregon, rhode island & connecticut.

    please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! we are ready to move!

    thank you!

    Why do you want to leave? just wandering.
  5. by   moni rn
    some of the reasons for leaving:

    1) in-laws: both sets of parents live within 10 minutes of our front door; my bil & sil are psycho, & they live about 5 minutes down the road

    2) memphis is so close-minded in a lot of areas: race relations, midwives

    oh, yeah, we would also like a "real" college-town.

    i truly do not mean any disrespect to any tennesseans. i was born & raised in memphis. tn has been my life. i am just ready for a change. please understand, i do not mean any disrespect!

    thank you!

    I have no suggestions since Tennessee where I have always lived. But good luck where ever you decide to go. Tennessee will miss you.

    I happen to love Connecticut and Rhode Island!
    Rhode Island is a big college state, and CT has its share of fine schools as well. Wish you the best wherever you decide to go. :kiss

    I would tell you Pittsburgh but I don't know about the education thing. Every single type of education program known to man is avalable at one or other of our Universities so that probably is also. Mt Lebanon in South Hills is really nice, close to town where the universities are located. You should see the Pirate Stadium. It is the nicest ball park around. A lot of people are going out to Washington County to see the minor league team the Wildcats. Everyone always says the greater Pittsburgh area is a good place to rase kids. If you don't mind traveling a bit there are tons of suburban communites that are really nice.

    Moni - I can understand. Some of the reasons you stated are the same reasons I didn't stay after I finished school there.

    moni, i completely understand your wanting to move. good choices you have made.

    i think near some mountains or ocean would be really cool.

    vegas rn has a great suggestion too go indians !!!

    good luck, let us know what you decide.

    Yeah, there are some REALLY nice places to live in Ohio. I also high recommend Kansas! Some of the nicest college towns I've seen has been in Michigan.

    Any of those would probably produce winter shock, though. For that (and other!) reasons, I'll leave Purdue (West Lafayette Indiana) OFF the list!

    What fun to think about this and choose!!

    Love

    Hey, I can second the Ohio vote! Medical College of Ohio in Toledo has a Master's Program. And we even have our own minor league team that just got an awesome new baseball field!

    Well, I think Seattle fits your requirement: 4 universities with Master's-level nursing courses right in the city; the Seattle Mariners; and loads of great neighborhoods both in and just out of the city that are very family-friendly.

    Plus, socially liberal environment--most folks are pretty live-and-let-live here--and psycho in-laws are, by law, strip-searched and detained at the state line.

    I'm just sayin'......

    Having your relatives living close by may be a pain but at least they can go home the same day they visit you, if you move away they might visit you for weeks at time!!
