Sooo, after 6 years of living in the Cheese State, I'm moving back home to St. Paul. Gotta few questions from you locals
-Ideas on where I can get a job as a new grad? It's been 2 months since I graduated from school (NCLEX still pending) & I've barely gotten a nibble out here in WI. Do you think I'll find the same in St. Paul? Hopefully I can get the wheels going on this NCLEX thing, but do you think I can get hired as a new grad without it?
-I doubt there are many who've been in this particular situation, but I'm grappling with this whole WI to MN transfer. It's kinda extra-complicated since I haven't taken the boards yet. I contacted MN SBON & it kinda sounds like I have 2 options: 1) I can fill out paperwork & such to get my school records transferred to MN & take my NCLEX there or 2) I can try & get this NCLEX thing out of the way here in WI, then just get my license transferred to MN. I get the feeling that both options will cost about the same & probably take about the same amount of time. Anyone have experience with this? It's just really overwhelming to me - where do I start?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

i took a quick peek at the MN BON website. i looks like about a hundred bucks can get one a "licensure by endorsement" from any other state including WI...so you could take the boards in either place...
