Compensation is an extremely important aspect for the overwhelming majority of people who must work for a living, including the nurses who claim to do their jobs for purely altruistic reasons. Salary surveys can empower nurses because they unearth valuable information. You are reading page 18 of Nursing Salary Survey 2014. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Some of these pay rates should be against the law.....NO RN should be in the twenties as a base pay rate. It doesn't matter if you are diploma, ADN, BSN etc. The type of responsibility we hold does not equate to being paid less than 30 an hr base pay....and if you are sacrificing nights, weekends, holidays away from loved ones, differentials should push you to minimally late 30's to 40's...

Yes even in low cost of living areas.

LOL. . .I went to nursing school in Oklahoma City. In 2014, the University of Oklahoma Medical Center is still paying new RNs less than $20 per hour, regardless of degree earned. Most of the other hospitals in the city are following the same trend.

I was an LVN for 4 years before I earned my RN license. My last LVN position in 2010 had been paying me $27 per hour in Texas. When I earned the RN license, hospitals in the area were offering me between $25 and $27.75 hourly. So for my case, becoming an RN entitled me to earn less money than many of my LVN counterparts. BTW, I didn't accept any of these offers.

It probably would be close to or in the 30's were it not for the glut of nurses. Exactly why the glut was deliberately created using the false "nursing shortage" propaganda.

Yep. If local nursing employment markets are glutted with too many nurses, wages can essentially drop. In addition, nurses can be 'kept in line' due to the glut because if one vocally outspoken nurse is shown the door, there will be 100+ unemployed applicants itching to fill his/her old position.
