I was very surprised to see the first top payer on the list was not pharmaceutical companies. I know of colleagues who earn $300,000 and greater in this industry, as an RN, with the best benefits I have seen in my long and varied career. I do believe it is the highest paying job with the title of R.N. that you can get.
