    Moving to Charlotte- any insight on pay, location, hospitals

    Thank you for the insight! $5-6 a hour difference is huge. I’m in the process of purchasing a home that is just 10mins south of concord mills. Just on the border of Harrisburg. It looks like there are a lot of surrounding hospitals to choose from. Besides the difference in pay does either hospital have a bad reputation at all? Or just different pros and cons.
  2. Hey guys, I’m looking to move to Charlotte and currently work in Raleigh. I’ve heard the pay is less in Charlotte which would be a huge draw back for me. I have 5 years of ICU experience and have my BSN as well as my CCRN. Does anyone know of any pay ranges that may put me in? I am not opposed to trying different specialties, I actually would like that. Also looking to probably move around mint hill or concord, any area I should avoid or hospitals to avoid? Thank you again!
  3. Hello everyone! Going to be be moving to Charlotte between March and July of 2019. Trying to see what the average pay and shift differentials are for an RN at some of the main hospitals in the area like Carolinas hospital system, Novant, Lake Norman regional. Or any specialty type clinics. Im My my background is five years of ICU, I have my BSN and my CCRN, my current hospital does not pay more for this but I know some do. Looking to change specialties though. Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
  4. With all the training involved do they hire into PT positions or prefer people to start off full time? I will probably be moving between March-July to Concord. Any suggestion around what point to start applying? I don't want to be too early to where the employers Thank you for your advice! :)
  5. Hey everyone, Looking for some opinions and advice please! I've been an ICU nurse for just over five years and this past year have really been getting the itch to change specialties. My husband and I will be moving to Charlotte, NC in March and I feel it would be a good opportunity to make the change. I have been researching job boards and have seen many opportunities for LDRP nurse positions and some mother baby units. Any opinions on which would be a smoother transition? Or what to expect with the learning curve of a new unit like this? Or even a better picture of what each unit involves? Im hoping with a switch to this specialty I may see more "happy beginnings" mixed in if that makes sense. As well as perhaps save my body a little bit, as it's been feeling the physical burnt out lately. I will be starting my FNP program next year as well and thought being more diverse in my experiences would be beneficial. Thank you to to anyone who responds!

    Congrats on the acceptance! Yea I thought about USA but got nervous about all the mixed reviews I read in here about them. I haven't found anything all that negative about University of Cincinnati so that's why I accepted there and they were the only ones I applied to. Plus the price isn't too bad for a brick and mortar school.

    Congrats! There's not a Facebook group that I'm aware of but I can create one. That's a great idea! I'm anxious to hear from them for the next details but I feel like we won't hear more until it's closer to the start of the program.

    That's so awesome! Congrats! Tblagg11 did you also apply for FNP? I think the first year all NP's take a lot of the same core courses. I'm still waiting to hear from an advisor what the next step is. Anyone here from one since acceptance?

    University of Cincinnati FNP spring 2019

    Fingers crossed for you! It seemed fairly quick once paperwork was in. Everything I've read about it has been positive and I'm glad they have a spring start date! I'm just waiting for advisor to contact me with next steps now that I'm admitted

    That's awesome! Nursing cas took 2-3 weeks before it was complete with them. Then once I paid the second fee to the actual college it took exactly two weeks before I got the acceptance through email í ¾í´—
