Do you know what it means?

I want to move to New Orleans in December/January. I will be a registered nurse with a bachelor's degree. I don't know anyone who lives there. I'm looking for any advice or encouragement. Where should I live? What are the job prospect like and where should I work? If you've ever moved somewhere you really weren't familiar with, what advice do you wish someone had given you?

I'm a lady in my late 20s. I've lived on my own before but never where I didn't know anyone. I have no husband, boyfriend, children, or pets, so I can pretty much live anywhere. Although I've been there a couple of times as a tourist, I'm not hugely familiar with the city. There's no real reason for me to be in New Orleans, but it's been my dream for many years to live there. Unfortunately, I don't quite know how to get started going about that.
Any advice or thoughts are appreciated. I'm particularly interested in advice on establishing myself with regard to living and working in a new city.
