I am sure there are a lot of factors that play part in it. Because it's such a flexible and highly demanding job, a lot of my friends early on decided to do travel nursing for a bit, it pays more than regular RN and you get the opportunity to see the country and maybe decide to move.

Thank you,

Hey Marie,

I think that it depends on where you are working and the amount of experience you have. I think you could find out an average salary relatively easily, but there are a lot of variables.

Thanks,
Blake
