hi im a 32 yr old black single female with no children. i currently have my lpn license and am working on a RN license here in cleve oh. i would like to move to greensboro summer 09. my concern is how is the employment for LPNs there? and their range of rates for lpns? (we are pretty decent here in cleve, 19-25$, and it is very import for me to be around that, unless your cost of living is lower there) and do they have any good reasonably cost trasition from lpn to RN schools? what about entertainment? do black comedians and singers book shows there? how is the club scene for the 25-40 group? are there many single over 30 men there? the best area for a single woman alone? im sorry for so many questions, im just a confused mess. some of this ive tried to google, but nothin like real live people that actually live there and know for fact.

7Lady, there are more medical jobs in Winston-Salem verses Greensboro and the pay is probably better; however I am sure Moses Cone in Greensboro will probably have some openings too. Winston-Salem is home to two major Medical Centers and the Piedmont Triad Research Park: Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and Forsyth Medical Center. Wake Forest Baptist also offer a program through Winston-Salem State University where you can get your BS in Nursing and Forsyth Tech offers 2 year RN degrees. I think WFUBMC pays your tuition to both places. If I were looking for a job in the medical field, I would choose Winston-Salem over Greensboro; however Greensboro is a nice city to live in. Both of the cities are about the same size in population and offer the same things and are about 30 minutes apart. Check out High Point Regional Medical Center, Moses Cone Medical Center, and Wesley Long Medical Center too. The singles sceen for the 40 year old range is not that great. I would guess the average pay is a bit lower here with LPN's making an average of 20 an hour depending on experience. Hope this helps some.
