In l980, my 62 yo father had a heart attack in Nevada. I was so impressed with the LOC, education and technology. The nursing staff HAD BSN's and were working on MSN's, computer charting was the norm, patient education was readily available on their TV monitors, just to name a few. So much for my faulty impression of regions beyond the north east. Congrats! I think the salaries reflect professional achievements. And more importantly, the achievement and salary compensation seems to have continued.

I am guessing this must be the average annual salary of RNs who responded to the survey from any given State. If most people who responded have advanced degrees and years of experience plus their overtime pays were counted in the annual income, then it will appear as an inflated annual income. I work in AZ but my annual income goes up to 150,000 because I work 4-5 days a wk and on a wk-end pay plan that brings up my hourly rate to 63/hr.

THAT AVERAGE SALARY IS NOT TRUE IN THE Nashville TN area. In fact it is very much lower.

is that monthly or annual

What are the salaries for LPN's. It's always about RN's. We are important as well. Thanks

I definitely need to move! I barely make 29000.00 a year, granted this is my first position since graduating and obtaining my state license as an LPN. Hoping my move to Tampa Florida will boost my worth after almost 2 years with my first post graduate nursing job.

It seems the nurses should be talking with each other about salaries. The longer we are in the dark the longer we are taken advantage of by administrators who are more worried about bottom lines than patient outcomes and care of vital employees.

The posted salaries have been designated as "earnings by highest degree and more" within a specific state. Not entry level RN averages.

I have been working almost 2 yrs at the hospital and do know that starting annual salary for brand new nurse is about $41,000. I know that traveling nurse jobs pays well.

Hi everyone! If you click on the regional links, your questions will be answered!

These salary ranges can not be correct because in Eastern North Carolina a RN with associated degree nursing is $38,000 to $80,000 with experience. A new graduate nurse only starts with $35,000 per year.

I am guessing they included nurse practitioners into the " nurses " category . Their salary starts at about 65-70K/yr

I would venture to add that the salaries referenced are not base pay salaries and they include shift differentials, hazard pay, and quite possibly overtime, etc.

I agree with you Jenny, Nurses in Florida are not making that much. Georgia is worse, my pay in Georgia was half of what I am getting in Florida.

I agree that these are seasoned nurse salaries. I have 13 years experience PLUS specialty certifications and the above graph is relatively correct. I can verify both Florida and Alabama with my career.

Kristina Knox,  RN,OCN,Nurse EducatorFebruary 26, 2014

Jenny, I ask the same question about Illinois. Yet, I have heard that many workplaces ask that nurses 'not' discuss their salaries......

Sue ,  RNJanuary 30, 2014

I would like to know how many years experience these nurses are making this kind of money and in what specialty? I know my fellow nurses aren't not even close to this salary in Florida.
