    Nurses salary has a lot to do with their specialty as well as location. Homecare does not usually pay well but the nurses that i know that works in NYC make a decent living. Move that same job with your experience to middle America and your salary will decrease.

    In Chicago (well surrounding suburbs as well) ADN (RN) and BSN (RN) make approximately the same amount of money.

    FRESH out of school RNs (both ADN and BSN) start at about 55-60k A YEAR. With experience, the salary increases dramatically. This is working in a hospital though, 40 hours a week, not home care.

    PS: That's around $26-$29 an hour straight out of school.
