    Pay will always be dependent upon whether one has a union, what state one lives in, and years of service. It is the nature of the job. Of course I am speaking of mostly hospital/clinic/type jobs. I think all schools should have BSN only, just so that eventually all RN's are educated (even tho it means nothing in the hospital setting unless one wants to be in management) at a higher degree for the public to know.
    I believe eventually most or all acute care hospitals will require BSN. I do not have it and am not interested as I am with a few years if that left to work and there is no way I want or need to have more stress/work/etc. I work 4 8hr shifts/week and my pay 2012 was $105,000. And this amount was with having days off without pay.

    I never really give much thought to the pay spread. A nursing assistant makes less than me and says they do most of the work. Whatever. I know the truth is the more you make the more you spend.

    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. How do you feel about your salary compared to other professions? Click Like if you enjoyed it.

    I am finally making a 6 figure salary, but have 30 years experience and work in management. I would prefer working with patients but it would be hard to give up the income.
