Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in Illinois earn well above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Wheaton, report average salaries as high as $65/hr. 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 upwards of $100,000. The median and mean salaries are both high in Illinois but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $100k per year. This is super enticing to travel nurses who have a great opportunity to increase their earning potential. Since most living expenses are paid for or reimbursed, travel nurses working in Illinois have even more earning potential.
