According to several sources, including the BLS, nurses stand to earn an average pay of around $68,450 per year. The numbers above are median incomes based on 2016 BLS surveys. On top of these pay rates there's a lot of additional earning potential in the form of bonuses, travel nursing pay, and much more. For instance, the highest median salaries for registered nurses are in the Northeast and West. Of the 20 states where RNs earn the most 9 of them are in the west (CA, OR, WA, HI, NV, AZ, CO, TX, AK) and 8 are in the Northeast (NY, MA, NJ, MD, DC, CT, RI, DE). According to GlassDoor the yearly national average salary for RNs is $65,976. This number is most likely lower than the median salary provided by BLS because entry-level positions are dragging the average down. The data provided by GlassDoor is based on over 40,000 anonymous salary reports by registered nurses.
According to several sources, including the BLS, the number of jobs for registered nurses are going up in a major way over the next decade. Based on data collected in 2016, they estimate nearly half a million new jobs for RNs from 2016 to 2026. The BLS also claims that nurses rank number one in most annual job openings among all occupations requiring a minimum of an associates degree. That's kind of a mouthful but what it means is that there over 100,000 jobs for RNs opening every year. Becoming an RN is a difficult path. This doesn't appear to be changing much in the near future. With record numbers of applicants being turned away from nursing baccalaureate and graduate programs, combined with record high demand, estimates on average salaries are expected to increase as well.
