How Much Do Registered Nurses Make?

Average Perm Staff RN Salary

$72,180/yr

$34.70/hr

$1,388/wk

The numbers above are based on the national median for Perm Staff Registered Nurse salaries. Travel nurses have a much greater earning potential due to paid housing, incidentals stipends, bonuses, and reimbursement packages. According to aggregate numbers from several reputable sources, including the Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses earn a median salary of about $72k per year. Travel nurse pay varies greatly from state to state and specialty to specialty. For that reason, averages can often be misleading. Even factoring median salaries, rather than mean, can be inaccurate. Several other factors such as years of experience, labor disputes in the city/state, quality of the facility, and your certifications can have an impact on your earning potential as a travel nurse. The top 5 highest paying cities in the country are all located in California with San Francisco in the top position at about $136,610 per year. It's important to note that with paid housing/housing stipends and incidentals reimbursement the higher cost of living in an area like this is mitigated so you can actually take home a substantial salary. The top 5 highest paying states are almost all on the west coast with a few outliers in Massachusetts, Hawaii, and Alaska. California again is at the top with a median salary for registered nurses of about $100k per year. Oregon is also on this list with a median salary for RNs of about $87k per year. Washington, Arizona, Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Deleware, and Nevada are among the higher paying states for RNs as well. The top 5 highest paying registered nurse specialties are Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), Pain Management Nurses, Neonatal Nurses, Critical Care Nurses, and Medical-Surgical Nurses.

Salary data can vary widely from source to source. This is primarily due to the method they each use to generate this information. The BLS data comes from surveys that they perform every couple of years. The last BLS survey was conducted in 2016 and true salaries may be quite different now. Sources such as GlassDoor also crowdsource their statistics from nurses working in the field. Furthermore, sites like Indeed provide salary information based on the pay that employers are offering for positions. Since many of these can be entry-level positions their data can skew the results. Also, since their data is based on current hiring trends it can be more accurate than some other datasets but will fluctuate from month to month. In compiling this information we've done our best to find a happy medium that takes all these variables into account. That being said, it's difficult to factor in things like stipends, reimbursements, and other untaxed compensation that travel nurses enjoy. We believe it's fair to assume that the median travel nurse salary is a decent amount higher than the medians listed above for staff RNs.

We've compiled data from several trusted salary information sources such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics, GlassDoor, Payscale, and Indeed.com.

Licensure

One of the biggest hurdles in starting your first travel nurse job is acquiring a license to practice nursing in the state you're traveling to. Many states participate in the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC), Enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC), or are what's called "Walk through States". For those states, it can be much simpler to get licensed as you can obtain licenses for multiple states all at once. However, many states such as California don't participate in these programs. If the state you're looking to apply to doesn't participate you'll have to go through their board of nursing to get a license. Each state has their own board with their own procedures, processing timelines, and specific application requirements. Each individual state also has different fees and temporary license offerings. For that reason, we've compiled a robust travel nurse licensure resource that can be accessed by visiting the links above or by browsing the licensure resources below.
