My husband and I may be moving to NC in April for his new job. The company is located in Mooresville. I am an RN with 2 years experience (telemetry and NICU) and will probably look into applying to the two hospitals after the move. I am currently in Michigan working at a 335 bed, unionized hospital, making about $22/hr.
I was hoping I could gather more information on the two major health systems. They both look like they have similar sized hospitals and similar specialties. I guess what I am wonder the most would be: pay, shift differentials, pay for per diem nurses, parking, on site daycare, benefits, how the hiring process is, and most importantly how happy the nurses are. I did see that Presby is Magnet, but I've also heard that it doesn't mean a darn thing.
I do know that nurses are having trouble finding jobs and I do know it may take a while. Thankfully, my income is mostly supplemental so we'll be able to relocate on his job alone.
