Love the arts and the outdoors? Take your Advanced Practice career to the “Twin Cities” and get the best of both worlds.
Don’t let the idea of weathering Minnesota’s winters keep you away from a great NP or PA job opportunity. The Twin Cities area of Minneapolis-St. Paul is booming and is known as one of the healthiest areas in the nation. Enjoy outdoor festivals and Minnesota’s famous 10,000 lakes in the summer. When the seasons turn, embrace the cold with activities like snowmobiling, ice fishing, and hockey. And, thanks to a network of climate-controlled skyways in the city, you’ll be able to get through the workday without bundling up.
Minnesota Cost of Living & Economic Outlook
According to Sperling’s Best Places cost comparison, the economy in Minnesota is positive, with an unemployment rate below the national average. The cost of living is slightly higher than the US average. For example, the median home price in Minnesota is $207,500 compared to the national average of $196,500, according to Zillow.
The above average cost of living is offset by higher than average NP, CNS, and PA salaries. Our most recent Melnic Salary Survey shows salaries in Minnesota to be approximately 5% higher than the national average.
Practicing as an NP in Minnesota
Minnesota is a full practice state, so NPs are able to diagnose, initiate treatment, and prescribe medications under licensure by the state board of nursing. For more details, refer to the AANP State Practice Environment resource.
