I started this thread way back before I moved to Wilmington and the problem with pay vs cost of living here is that we are close to the beach. A lot of people retire down here and while certain things like home prices and taxes are a lot less than up north, it's still a pay cut. I figure that while the cost of living is maybe 30% less (probably more like 25% less than NY because of where we live in Wilmington) the pay is 40% less, so the two don't add up!

That said, the experience I've gotten here and the people I work with are fabulous! The hospital still needs to work on staffing and retention of good RNs but I hear that's the way it is most places so hopefully they'll get it together.

Hi- I have a few general questions. I live in Greenville, NC and I graduate this May!! :) My fiancé and I are planning to relocate to Wilmington, contingent upon jobs of course. I am applying to NHRMC through their new grad RN program. Is the pay for a new grad still $19.76? Do they still only hire new grads on med/surg floors? Any tips on the process of applying to NHRMC??

Any info would be appreciated. also, if you know what the night and weekend diff is that would be helpful. I plan on working straight nights. thank you

Hello!

I have recently moved to Wilmington and just graduated from Nursing School in upstate NY. I did a GreenJob One-Way interview and never heard back. Can you give me insight onto what you did to get hired there? Please and thank you!

Hi, my husband and I are moving to Wilmington next month because of a job transfer he received. I have one year experience on a med/surg floor. I have a Skype interview tomorrow for a night position on the 6th floor at NHRMC. Any advice? I'm also wondering about pay. I'm from NY, I make 23.56 base rate, plus 4/hr overnight. Thank you!

I have to disagree "we don't have to make a crap load of money down here". Nursing is hard and requires a certain skill set. Nurses deserved to get paid what they are worth, and my education and the **** I put up with on a daily basis deserves more than 19/hr. I can make much more money bartending with way less stress and responsbility. NHRMC has a huge monoploy in the area, so they can pay as little as they want. It's one of the reasons many nurses are leaving.

The cost of living here in ILM is cheaper, but not so much cheaper that it justifies 19/hr. I used to live in the SF Bay area, the most expensive place to live in the US (more than NYC), and I spend just as much money on my cellphone, utilities, movie tickets, food and I pay even MORE money for fresh fruits and veggies.

I am leaving NHRMC as I was offered a job at a different facilty (more money, better benefits, better staf retention, better reputuation), but FYI, nurses are leaving en masse. We have hired 45 nurses in the past 2 months, about 20 of those are new grads from my school alone. 2 of my friends in NICU, 1 in L&D, and 3 or so on a stepdown floor. NHRMC is also employing travel nurses to get us through the next few months.

There are many reason nurses are leaving the hospital or transfering to the ICU's....keep that in mind when applying here.

Good luck to all :heartbeat

I think you might be in the wrong business. Comparing bartending to nursing ehhhhhhh says alot about your reasoning for becoming a nurse! Just say'n

Cna's work their asses off too and get paid nothing basically. I can do pretty much everything a LPN (former btw) can do as a NA 11 and don't complain about what I FEEL I'm worth. Hell were All worth more..lol =/ I do this job not just for the money I do this mainly to HELP others. New Hanover is a GREAT place to work! If anyone did their homework it's 1 of the top 10's finest! You sound like you belong back where you came from. Good riddens.

You do realize that you are replying to a post from about 5 years ago?

No you cannot do pretty much everything a LPN can.
