    I'm out of state in nursing school right now but want to move back home to MN after I get my degree in december. Just wondering if anyone can give me an idea of how much new RNs can hope to make in the Minneapolis and surrounding areas. Thanks!

    yeah, i posted a question about if minnesota was hiring for nurses and so far, no one answered so wondering about the job market here?

    I live in minnesota and i have HEARD (not vereified) that minnesota starts RN's at around 20 bucks an hour.
    Probably get more in the twin cities.

    According to Salary-dot-com, in the Minneapolis area:
    50% of staff nurses earn between 56K to 67K per year. And on the low end 51K; on the high end 71K.

    I'm only a pre-nursing student so I can't back any of this up. Hopefully we'll get a bona-fide Minnesota nurse to verify this info.

    Hi,

    i am also only a pre-nursing student, but according to the statistics of my college (graduate job placement), around here newly grad RNs start anywhere from 16-30$/hour- so i guess an average of 20 sounds about right. i live in the country (mcleod county), though, twin cities metro might pay more.

    I just graduate from nursing school and found a job in a hospital even before I graduate. All MN hospital pay new graduates who without any experiences $25 per hour, if you work at straight evening or nights, there will be variable pay. About how easy to find a job, I will say it is not that hard. At least, most of my classmates found job before graduate. Another suggestion, finding a nursing assistant job in a hospital, it helps a lot.
