    Does anyone have experience with any of the general hospitals in the greater Wilmington area? I am interested in that area as a possible move to destination. Thanks.

    I am looking for similar info. I've checked out the new hanover website (I think it's www.nhhn.com) but haven't checked it lately. I believe there are also some smaller hospitals in the area, but not sure what their names are, and for all I know, they could be part of New Hanover. Good luck! -Andrea

    I work at New Hanover hospital. This is the trauma center of the area. Cape Fear Community hospital is also in Wilmington. It's known for it's orthopedic capabilities. I think there is a smaller hospital outside of town, Pender Hospital, but am not sure much about this facility. I haven't been here for long, but so far I like it. The location is very nice...especially at this time of the year. Let me know what other kind of questions ya'll have and I'll try to answer some if I can.

    I would be most interested in their maternity services and womens' health services in general. Also, what do you particularly like about that geographical area? Thanks for all the input.

    What's the cost of living in the Wilmington area? I live in the Triangle, but after I graduate, we'd consider a move to elsewhere in the state. My husband loves Wilmington...

    I am also curious about jobs in Wilmington. I plan to move there from Wisconsin, and I all I know about the area is what I found on the internet. I noticed a huge difference in salaries on the websites. Do you know (roughly) what a graduate RN would make? I have been a LPN for 5 years.

    I called last year, and I think it started out around $18/hr.

    Thanks. The research that I did on the web was around there too. I read something somewhere though that sounded like it came from a disgruntled nurse that said that starting pay for new grads was only $13 an hour and most houses were $300,000. Couldn't believe that was true but it made me wonder a lot more. Thanks for the relieving message!

    I am alittle more up the coast and a bit inland, in New Bern. We are not as big as Wimington, but it is nice here. New grads start at $18/hr...$20/hr with shift diff. Cost of living is pretty low, too. We had our house built for $116K for 1540 sqft.
