Hello from Asheville and congratulations on your life changing graduation!
Asheville is indeed beautiful. We have tons of outdoor activities, museums, historical landmarks, and cultural activities such as Folkmoot and Bele Chere. We also have our share of hippies that beg for money and drive BMWs, tourists, and high costs of living.
As far as work goes nurses are so much better off than most professionals because we are always needed. That being said, the main hospital in Ashe-vegas is Mission Hospitals and it is in a hiring freeze.
Not only is Mission in downtown Asheville, but they are associated with several other smaller hospitals in the area.
On the Saint Joseph campus of Mission Hospitals is a LTACH called Asheville Specialty Hospital. Not sure of their hiring status. They are a joint venture between Mission Hospitals and CarePartners. Here is the site they post jobs on.https://www.carepartners.org/pagedis...=31&subpage=88
I forgot to ask: What kind of job are you seeking? Hospital? Visiting health position? Doctors office?
I suggest a healthy introduction to Medical-Surgical nursing.
Anyway. There is Haywood Regional, which just got purchased by a big health system. (Purchased? Merged? Adopted? Whatever!) Haywood had been in some trouble with the state but got their rights back.
