Duluth recently was placed on a top ten list for small cities for nurses. The criteria looks a lot into how much debt nurses end up having after schooling compared to the cost of living and available jobs in these cities.

Duluth came in at #7 because of the following reasons:

  • The average annual wage was $66,780
  • Above average employment of nurses
  • Your dollar goes further in Duluth than some comparable smaller cities

The data gets more complicated, and you can see all of it here from Studentloanhero.com. Other midwest cities made the list as well, such as Eau Claire Wisconsin, Bay City Michigan, and Saginaw Michigan.
