    Thank you skayes for the fast response. The LPN role in the hospitals here in Ohio is changing as well. One of the local hospitals actually let all of them go last year and the hospital I work for isn't getting rid of them but they aren't hiring any new ones. Good luck on your RN. I was an LPN first and if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.

    I just recently graduated PN school and waiting to take my boards in a few weeks now to get licensed. I've always been interested in relocating to NC. I'm 25 and still want to go on for my RN and eventually BSN. Been looking at wilimington because I've also heard its a nice city and close to the coast which is what I'm looking for in terms of change of scenery having lived in Boston all my life. Wanted to know how your experience was in terms of finding a job, apartment, further schooling in the area? any recommendations you have or other areas in NC or the surrounding areas that you would recommend instead? I just want to be able to travel and experience different parts of the country while I'm still young and thought NC would be a good starting point.

    Sorry this took a bit to reply to. Been busy. Wilmington is beautiful and so close to the shore yep. They don't take PNs in the hospital of course so a nursing home/rehab facility will be your beat shot. Difficult getting a job prior to relocating so keep that in mind. the place I worked at found my resume on career builder. Housing is fairly affordable as it's a college town. If you're really serious I can give you my old roommates email and you could talk with him about a living arrangement. I have since moved. I used to love in Nevada and missed all my friends so I moved back there. You can message me on Facebook if you'd like faster replies and more email. I don't mind helping.
