I'm a registered nurse with 3 years of experience and I want to relocate to NC at the end of next summer. I currently live in Pittsburgh pa and make $21.35 an hour. I've been hearing the cost of living in NC is pretty high but the pay is low. Will I be taking much of a pay cut?
I've been seeing that its hard to get a job in NC (from posts in this forum). Is this still true? I also read that lots of nurses are relocating to NC. Is there a particular reason why?
I am not sure what area I'd like to live in. I've heard good things about Charlotte, and also went to a NC State football game in Raleigh NC and I liked that area as well. I'd like to live somewhat close to the beach (2-3 hour drive).
How is the weather? Does it get very cold? Does it snow? Im trying to get as much info as possible so I can make an educated decision about where to live.
I'd like to hear everyones info on NC .. PMs are welcome too
