My husband is an experienced RN and will soon be a Nurse Practitioner. He is bilingual (English & Spanish) as well.

If we moved to Bloomington, what would his hourly wage be? We are trying to figure out the differences in cost of living from MA to IN. Real estate is way cheaper, but if he isn't earning a good wage, it wouldn't work for us.

I dont' know about Bloomington, but in Indianapolis you should make between 35-45k/year. I do not know about Bloomington, but I am guessing it will be lower then the Indianapolis area.

You should check into Columbus Regional's pay as well.

Default best guesses

I spoke with someone I know that was thinking about nursing in B-ton. At the hospitals expect to start between 40-50,000 without experience for an RN. NP's make more. She thought they could make 70-80,000/year. I hope that gives you some idea. I did visit the local hospital websites, but they don't post pay rates. I hope that helps.

Thanks for the input. That sounds very decent, especially considering the lower cost of living.

The quote given is a fairly accurate range, depending, of course, on experience level. Our firm places RN's and NP's (we're based in Mass) and we are working with a client in Indiana looking for an FNP, and will entertain a new grad. They have RN openings as well. Our firm is MRA and our main number is 800-922-9997 if you're interested in discussing further.
