I'd say this state is definitely one of the more "new grad friendly" states Depending on where you're from though, a starting pay rate in the $20s might be a little low for some, but the experience makes up for it to some too.
I spoke with nurse recruiters from St Alexius and Sanford, they all hire New Grads and the starting /base is $22.75 and previous health care experience is not taken into consideration, all New Grads have the same base pay. st Alexius has a Job Fair on the 5th of September. Hope this helps you.
