Anyone who can help,
I'm a beginning airline pilot (~2 years into it) and my wife has 1 year of ICU experience with a 4 year RN. I want to move to the MSP area for a new job and my wife, the nurse wants to head back too.
Are there any hospitals in the metro area or even ST. Cloud that has new-hire benefits like moving assistance? or pehaps signing bonuses? Probably not unless she's a new-grad RN. Out in Virginia she got 10K for a two year contract and they paid us 2K to move us out here.
Know anything back home?
Thanks in advance!

Anyone have any good things to say about Abbott Northwestern or Fairview Southdale?
Any guesses on 4 year RN wages w/ 1 year ICU experience for these two hospitals or area hospitals?
Thanks for your help!

I work at Abbott Northwestern in the ICU, get ~$26/hr. base pay with $4/hr. differential for working straight nights. It is a great hospital, I highly recommend it. I came here as a new grad and have been here almost 2 years. Ironically, my boyfriend is also an airline pilot with about 1 year experience as well. Very weird......

I am not sure about the wages at Fairview Southdale as they are union but I do not have any info on their wages.
I am from a small suburban town 22 miles from Twin Cities and a RN @ 25 years makes 38.50/hour not including shift diff, charge pay and good benefits. We always tried to stay as close to Twins Cities contract as possible. You also get a pay increase when you move up to next step and the once a year contract raise on a 3 year contract.
Hope that gives you some info.
