    The winner of the lowest paying state would be Iowa, according to a radio report, we rank 51 in pay out of 50 states. That stinks!!

    Consider this...form your own professional practice group, provide your own benefits, operate a business and command the rate of pay you need to cover your benefits and make a better wage....ummm start your own business. Many others have and are somehow making a great living off the overhead they charge for YOUR work...this means hospitals, nursing homes, agencies....cut out the middle layer and increase your financial worth and enjoy nursing again...email me for an introduction to indendent practice/entrepreneurship.

    See http://www.preferredrns.com/main/ for more info, and btw he is very personable and great to talk to. He answered my queries and I really enjoyed hearing about his venture, which is extremely professional and solid. I think he should sponsor an allnurses.com convention and give a workshop on his business. What do you say Charles?

    Lame paying state of Florida? No need to get rude. And I seriously doubt Florida is the lowest paying state.

    Would suggest that there are more recent threads to peruse on pay - this one initiated four years ago. Try www.salary.com .
