Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in Georgia earn well above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Atlanta, report job outlook as high as 15%. Even sources like Indeed, which only report on salaries offered for open positions (often closer to entry level rather than senior positions) report higher than average salaries for RNs. The median and mean salaries are both high in Georgia but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $80k per year.
