    I'm an RN from upsate NY , and we may be relocating to the Hicory area. Any suggestions for job searches? We currently live in a small town, we have two middle school aged children and we love to go camping. How is the housing market/taxes? NY state taxes are bleeding us dry, the crime is out of control as is the drug problem, and we are currently freezing our bahoobas off!!!!! Anyone want to buy a house? Thanks

    I think you will find the Hickory area a wonderful change. The area is close to the beautiful mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Lake James is just gorgeous.

    I live in Asheville and work at Mission Hospitals. The pay is okay...My friends get paid a whole lot more in Johnson City, TN. The orientation was great. But always is the people who you encounter that make an experience worth it. My first department's orientation is the reason I left that department. My second department at the hospital has been a dream. Its all in the draw of the cards.

    My floor on the St. Joseph campus of Mission Hospitals is full of great nurses - some that have been in our department for 2 or 3 decades.

    Yes, Mission Hospitals does have an IV team. From what I see it looks like a great job!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently living in Florida and attending nursing school to become an LPN. There's a possibility that I might move next year to the Asheville area. I was wondering if anyone could name some of the schools in that area that have BSN programs or any LPN to RN programs. Thanks :spin:
