Ever since I started nursing school
, I wanted to become an NP. I graduate with my ADN this coming May and plan to start my BSN right away.
I had always heard that education "didn't pay much". I came across a news article that had links to every state education employee, and their salary information.
I was curious...so I randomly pulled up several of the universities (both major and minor) and my jaw about hit the floor. They even had adjunct faculty members that were getting paid $65K per year. Associate professors were making between $75 and 90K a year and the Dean pulled down a staggaring $200K+.
State employee benefits have always been very good, pensions, health insurance, etc.
Is there something I am not considering?
