I'm just wanting to know if anyone can tell me some of the local hospitals that are near Rochester and Minneapolis. My family will be moving there in the next year (at the most, maybe sooner) and I will need to begin looking for a job. We are so excited to move as my family is in Iowa and it will be so nice to be within driving distance too.
How is traffic in Minneap area? Can you live in suburb and still drive in? (*Think--I live in Seattle and deal with traffic here---just don't know how bad it is there).
Pay: I saw the new grad rates listed on Mayo Clinic website and they seem great for the cost of living. Are the other hospitals comparable? (28 ADN new grad and 29 BSN new grad--is what they posted). (*Please do NOT reference me to some area salary wizard--if you do not know or are not willing to share then fine).
Anything else you'd love to share about MN or MN and nursing would be greatly appreciated.
