Hello Yayliany,
The salaries for nurses all depend on:

Education
Experience
Certifications
State of Practice
Type and size of practice

I am a certified cancer nurse, only working online now. I have a Master's degree of nursing and hold a certification in oncology, but in the past I had 3 certifications toward my specialty. I live and work in Los Angeles and my previous job was in a major cancer center. I earned 6 figures. I also worked nearly 50 hours a week.

For your state, please read the following (copy and paste the URL into your web browser):

RNs earn a livable salary. But there is more. Working as an RN is immensely satisfying in many ways. I do hope you consider becoming an RN.

Best,
Sue

Salaries will depend on location, experience and certifications I’ve seen as low as 55k and up to 70k starting. If you really want to help people do not go into the profession and expect your work and your pay to have a direct relationship, if you do, you will always feel overworked and underpaid. Nursing isn’t for the faint of heart it has to be in you.

Many experienced nurses that I work with earn $25-$35 per hour.

Broadly, hospital & specialty RNs typically earn more than clinic/teaching/community nurses as the level of acuity is different. Hospital RNs can start at $50k but can receive differentials for night, weekend, holiday pay that can boost salaries another $15k. A less acute position outside of the hospital may pay $10-$12k less. These figures assume you’re a BS/BA in nursing. More prestigious hospitals will only hire 4-yr level nurses vs LVNs. To be a charge nurse, you must have a degree or numerous years of experience.

Dottie recommends the following next steps:

  • Get 4-yr degree in nursing
