I am going to be a new grad next year and I am looking at places to move to. I have a lot of family in the Charlotte area, and love visiting them. I was just wondering what kind of continuing ed. classes, such as certificates for mental health, nephrology, L & D ect., are avalible for nurses (throughout the whole state, not just that area). Are they done through the local colleges and univiersities, or are a lot of them distance ed?
