    I accepted a position at Duke Raleigh. I really liked the floor and staff. I received a phone call the next day with an offer.

    I was just looking for that info. I used to work for Wilson and I knew they were looking at getting help from a larger entity. Another local one got bought up by UNC. I guess Vidant had enough after Pitt and Nash. LOL. Wilson would be merging with Duke Health, not just Duke Raleigh. Duke has 3 hosp.

    Yea..UNC aquired several more locals..Johnston memorial, high point and Chatham I think. Duke and WakeMed arent doing so well. I think there may something in store for WakeMed soon.

    WakeMed has been CRAZY building and buying and they pay their nurses, right now anyway, more than anyone. You know that something has to give.

    I think everyone was counting on the Medicaid $$ that McCrory turned down and now they have realized they are down a creek w/o a paddle. Duke just finished building a brand new pavilion with 150+ new beds. The rest of the hospital was supposed to get updated in chunks, but that is on hold now. Also, they just spent a fortune on Maestro (Epic). I have been wondering how WakeMed could manage.

    My son used to go to on of the specialty clinics @ Wake, but they have cut back so much, it was horrid. We have transferred to Duke, which was quite a shock to the wallet. With insurance.

    Health care is in for a big shake up.

    I dont think WakeMed pays the most..whats is the hourly? Rex is paying $21.13 new grad.

    Wake may not pay the most as a new grad, but as a floor nurse, I think the shift diff are the highest. I know several nurses that have gone to work there and said that they pay more. I think new grads are all pretty much the same, give or take. There isn't much difference between the 20.74 at Duke and the 21.13 at Rex. Rex is really nice. I have a lot of friends that work there. I did 16 weeks of clinical there. Since I was an ADN, no chance of a new grad position for me.
