The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports employment among Registered Nurses will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018. They also report that large metropolitan cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, etc will be hiring the most nursing jobs.
According to PayScale, new Registered Nurses (RNs) earn between $30,233 - $63,540 per year (2012). That's not bad compared to other professions.

So far this year, I'm on track to making $65,000 (gross) which is a little lower than what I made last year. I'm pretty good with it and living in Florida with a relatively low C.O.S. also helps. Nurses deserve to have higher pay than other professions because of the magnitude of risks, and stress, involved in providing patient care regardless of the care setting.
