salaries vary depending on where you live, the amount of
nursing experience, educational background, and placement.
Current hospital rates indicate that base salaries for
nurses range from $40,000 to start and reach as high as
$75,000 with experience. Add to that any premiums for
working extra shifts, weekends, and overtime, and the
total cash compensation of nurses can easily increase by
an additional $10,000.
Meanwhile, advanced practice nurses
can earn as much as $100,000 or more. Nurses also are
usually eligible for excellent benefits such as free
tuition, paid time-off, health and disability insurance
and 401(k) plans. For additional info on nursing salaries,
