    I work for one of the two hospitals in Joplin, MO. I have worked at both, so I am familiar with pay at both facilities. The Joplin area is terrible when it comes to nursing wages. We have so many nursing schools nearby that we don't have any real shortage, but because of this, both hospitals pay very low wages. I know nurses that are making less than 19.00/hour at Freeman Hospital (which has the lower wages of the two hospitals in Joplin). I have lived in several states prior to coming here after my marriage and this area has some of the lowest wages I have made in my nursing career. I have been an RN for 13 years, and a tech for 16 years before that. I am now making what I made 10 YEARS AGO in another mid western state. It is so bad, and not bound to get much better, that I am considering changing careers. My husband works at a factory job and makes a couple $ an hour more than I do! Plus he has only been there a few years! I have a kid in college and more graduating in the next few years and can't afford to help them with school on these low wages.
