I will be graduating from a Technical College as a RN in May in Wisconsin. I plan on relocating to the cities ASAP. I'm wondering what hospitals will hire an ADN RN, who is going back for their BSN, as a new grad with only LPN experience. I'm also wondering about Minneapolis RN wages. Anyone working in the Minneapolis metro area and can give me a rough range of what a medsurg RN starts at? THANKS!

Hello and welcome, I dont have much advice...but you can try Fairview Health services- I think they hire ADN-RN if going back for BSN. I think HealthEast only wants BSNs. Most of the hospitals are BSN preferred but you can try them. HCMC, Regions, Regina, Lakeview. I do not know the wages as I am a new RN myself I was an LPN, but I work at a clinic in the twin cities area.

I work at Regions, I like it there. They're not picky. Health East will only hire BSN's now, I think Allina is in that boat, as well as Fairview. I'm not sure.

HCMC will typically hire new ADN RN's, but it does help to have someone internally who is able to forward your resume onto the hiring managers. I know Healtheast is very particular about wanting their staff to have a BSN, but the others I'm not quite certain. Good luck in your search.
