Records from several reputable sources claim that RNs working in Mississippi earn well above the national average. Some major metropolitan areas, such as Madison, report salaries as high as 15% more than the national average. 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 Mississippi but the highest-earning positions often offer at or above $80k 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 Mississippi have even more earning potential.

Some nursing specialties are in higher demand than others. The following RN specialties have some of the highest demand. In Mississippi specifically, demand for qualified registered nurses is at an all-time high. Projections for future demand indicate that this demand will continue to increase as the population grows and new nurses come into the field at a slower rate than new positions are opened. This means that most facilities in the state are looking to travel nurses to help fill vacant positions.
