I hear a lot about Charleston and Greenville, but where are the MB nurses? What about pay and facility experiences in MB? I am interested in learning about MB and Wilmington NC area. ASN vs BSN? Any pay difference? Is it required in some facilities in MB or Wilmy? I plan on moving in 2016 when I graduate with my BSN. Some direction and advice from experienced nurses in this area would be appreciated!

Good questions! I'm in Ohio right now, but I'm also planning on moving back to the MB area in 2016. Looking forward to responses. Good luck in your program :)

I'm in Myrtle Beach and have been for 21 years. I've been a nurse since 2001. When I first started out as a hospital nurse I made about $18/hr. Now I'm in an ER and make just over $30/hr. I have my BSN and am 1/2 way through my MSN.

What are your interests? Acute care/hospital? Home health, hospice? Office work? LTC?

Some classmates that I graduated with work at Grand Strand Hospital and what I was told is that new grads start out at $24/hr. I don't know how much differential for nights and weekends. This pay rate was quoted in 2014. BSN nurses are preferred but ADN nurses do get hired. Getting hired as a new grad in the area is difficult, the area hospitals only hire a select few. Each semester the local college in the area graduates about 50 students or so from the ADN program.

Hey! I'm moving to MB to be with my fiancé in October. I'm in the process of getting my SC license by endorsement and I'm hoping to a per diem job by then. You guys know of anything? I'm hoping to avoid Grand Strand and maybe start at Waccamaw or Conway.

Waccamaw and Georgetown hospital are now considered tidelands group. Both of those hospitals require a BSN. Grand strand does not yet reiqre a BSN. Grand strand pays new grads around 23/hr. It's 2.50 extra for nights and 4.00 extra for weekends.

Tidelands will hire ADNs but they will ask that you agree to get your BSN within I think 3 years. TWCH has an ER residency program that is going well and all are ADNs, two are not new grads, but the rest are.
