I am a male and I'm 14. I live in Washington State. I am in AP Science. I love nursing (I have seen it first hand from my uncle, there is also a program from my school where you can job shadow so i have done that for a while). I find this job is great, however I would like to know how much i would earn the first year. Not that it is going to happen soon but i would just like to know. Thanks you. (Sorry for my english it's not my first language, im working on it).

There is not really a cut and dried answer to that question. It will depend on where you end up working and the pay scale could change drastically by the time you get there. Best of luck on your journey.
