    Where is the information for LVN/LPN's? Did I miss something?
    In the interactive charts, you can click on LPN/LVN in the drop down menus at the top of each chart to customize your view.

    Mchristy25 really? That's your take? Only 8% of the nurses were male! Based on just the numbers that means that almost every guy who replied had an advanced degree. It did not say whether or not the degree or the position was the exact same as their female counterpart, for instance they could be administrative roles or nurse practitioners. And In a primarily female dominated workforce like nursing it's awfully silly to think that men somehow have an advantage. PS. Negotiate everything, it's the one thing Men do differently they do not just say yes to get a job, negotiate everything, and prove your value.

    You're right, nursing has evolved to require an advanced degree in something in order to stay competitive.

    The Gender differences after a certain income bracket SO clear!

    I need to work in a Northern State or California! Our pension stopped in 2004 and now theyare dispersing the money. Insurance and dental premiums continue to climb higher and no raise in sight. It bothers me that we do so much but are not compensated as we should be. We are the backbone of health care!

    I just went through new hire training for a Polk County, Florida hospital. The brand new nurses with no experience were hired at $21.95 with full benefits after 30 days. That seems low to me, but I'm not a nurse either. They are required to complete a nurse residency program, so perhaps that's why.

    By the looks of these numbers I'll stay put in New York (downstate) ... I am well compensated for the work I do. (My opinion)

    Wonder why Utah has such a low compensation rate
  12. by   NedRN
    Balanced supply or higher nurses than jobs. Supply and demand is always the best predictor of compensation. The cost of living locally is a second good predictor. Sometimes a monopoly postiion by a regional healthcare system or a union can affect pay but that is usually a minor effect.

    This would be why. I work in Utah and Intermountain Healthcare operates 22 hospitals in the state. Big-time monopoly. All other competitor hospitals match their wages and keep pay down. Wish they'd bring in a union hospital. IHC would throw a fit. I make $23.53/hr as a nurse with 6 months experience.
