  2. Hourly wage with "normal" hours (South)
    :roflmao: Judging by the comments, it seems like $60-70k ($32-$38/hr) is more realistic for the highest paid nurses with lots of experience and normal working hours. Not really wealthy, but still...

  12. What kind of money does a nurse REALLY make?
    So why mention $140k? The state is irrelevant regardless. Average pay in MN is $74k, BTW. I never said new nurses shouldn't plan to work nights. I'm talking long term... I don't...
