I work at a hospital as a care partner and I plan on starting school in the fall for nursing. I heard the nurses discussing the fact that in some states RNs get paid more for having a bachelor's degree. In Indiana this isn't true, RNs with a bachelor's or an associate degree get paid the same salary and have the same benefits. I was wondering which states pay more if you have more education?

i think you have to ask individual HOSPITALS/EMPLOYERS this. some pay a differential; others not. this is one of many huge bones of contention in nursing. if you want to know who pays more for educational advances, you have to ask potential employers this. i dont' think it is regulated by STATE.
