hi! this is my first post to the charlotte board, or any board for that matter, but i was wondering what the market was like for RN's in charlotte. i'm an RN up here in raleigh with several hospitals (duke, unc, VA, wake and rex, the latter of the 2 I KNOW are hiring..well, except for newgrads...sorry...)! anyway, i looked at the websites for y'alls area hospitals and was wondering if anyone could give me some REAL info. by that i mean are they actually hiring because for about 6 months here (at rex health more specifically) we had job postings but not really hiring (so that the big wigs change policy like no pension/retirement/403b matching for newbies...). are you guys still getting bonuses, OT? are you short staffed, or low census? just looking for some comparison info!

Only thing I can offer is that CMC recently advertised for a wellness specialist for their staff wellness program and they had 169 applicants.Now any health proffs could apply-some are RNs others dieticians and exercise therapists.
With CHS you cannot apply for a specific job-you fill in a generic application and then they look to see if they have anything suitable.However I would advise a FU phone call.
CHS have many diff locations in the area, but biggest is CMC Charlotte. Also in Pineville,Monroe,Mathews and Concord.
Don't know about presby.
There are jobs advertised at Gaston Memorial, but don't know what it is like-it is Caromont health.
