One of the best sources for "feet on the ground" info about nursing (all aspects - not just finding a job in NC) would be allnurses.com. They have a special section for NC nursing.

North Carolina Nursing

There are many queries that have been posted over the years, involving finding jobs in Charlotte, what the job market is like, what shifts and hospitals are actually hiring, etc.

You may find it a very helpful site. Good luck!

ETA: here is a really interesting thread on the glut of nursing in many areas of the country (also from allnurses.com) It is a thread started by an editor and has pages of comments from nurses, many who weigh in on working as an RN in Charlotte/western NC. It may give you some ideas on job strategies.

If you're just looking for a place to be an entrepreneur or start a small business, there are literally dozens of better places in the southeast alone for you to obtain a first-mover advantage. P.S. The best places to live are the ones that haven't yet been called out as great places to live.

I would never consider packing up and leaving to go somewhere without having a job lined up first. Sure, I can dream about having that perfect job in my particular profession in Charleston, SC or Raleigh/Durham, NC, but reality is reality and requires a healthy dose of pragmatism.
Are you sure about that? lol

Everyone I see out on the roads are driving nice cars, and there are almost no trailer parks anymore, so I don't see how anything is wrong..
