Anyone willing to share wages for new grads outside of Omaha and Lincoln? I'm talking more rural areas, and in both hospitals and nursing homes. You can PM me if you are willing to give this out.
Department of Labor
, just ctrl+F and search for nurse. It's all of nebraska.

You guys need to get to southern california-I can't believe they only pay RNs 18.00 an hour in NE. I make 20.00 as an LVN and plan on 85,000 dollars a year when I graduate next May!
Thanks but no thanks. Although the pay may be more elsewhere in the country, so is the cost of living. I live in the middle of nowhere. This town has MAYBE 200 people. My 5 bedroom house cost us $9000.00 5 years ago. It is older and did need repair, but in Cali. it woulda been ALOT more, like over 10x more. Land out here sells for about $1000-2000 an acre. If I want to go hunting I just start walking with my gun out the back door.
My kids school has a student to teacher ratio of about 15:1. If one of the kids is doing anything wrong (smoking, drinking, drugs) I will know about it the next day or sooner.
I love it out here and I wouldn't have it any other way.
On the other hand, if I were single with no kids--maybe.
