  1. Hello!! :) I'm looking to relocate to the Charlotte area. Any information about working for CMC or Presbyterian Hospitals would be helpful....but specifically I am wondering: --What is the RN base pay for a new grad? --What is the RN base pay for 2 years Med/Surg/Orthopedic experience? --Are there any shift differentials for working nights or weekends? Thanks!

    PACU vs. Prep and Recovery

    Hi. Could someone please tell me the difference between working in a PACU position vs. working in Prep and Recovery? I understand prep would be before the surgery, however I am not understanding what the difference would be between PACU and Recovery. I am highly interested in working somewhere within the surgery setting, however I don't have experience in that area...I am finding that most hospitals want someone with experience for OR and PACU. Would working in Prep and Recovery be a better way into the surgery setting for someone with no OR or PACU experience? I appreciate any input on this topic. :) Thanks in advance!
