I am thinking about moving to Charleston but am concerned what the job prospects are for RNs?

Check with MUSC, East Cooper, Mount Pleasant Hospital, Roper and Trident locations. You do have local nursing schools pumping out graduates and licensees, but just looking through the above would give you a great idea with regard to opportunities.

Does it seem to be a market that is pretty saturated?

It is very saturated, but you can find something if you give it time.

I'm going to assume you're an experienced RN? Or at the very least, not a new grad? The area pumps out a lot of new grads and there aren't a whole lot of new grad positions open, but there are plenty of experienced RN jobs available in the area. We certainly have a lot of hospitals here to choose from.

I am a new grad
Would I be looking at waiting months and months for something?

Specialized? No, just have a BSN...
GPA is nothing super special, but none of the applications I've looked at ask for GPA so

As a new grad, I suggest getting some experience on a med surg floor for at least a year.. and then you can spread your wings and venture out. A good year getting your skills down is so important.

Months and months? No. But you may not get something immediately. However, you do have a BSN which may help you get the job over an ASN that just got cranked out of Trident Tech. All depends on how well you interview and if you have clinical experience as a tech. Check out all of the hospitals websites - their job postings are up to date.
