Sara’s Answer

There really is no average. ICU nurse salaries are determined by the facility. Salaries are influenced by the area of the country where the facility is located as they are competing for available RNs with other area facilities. Decide where you want to live and then explore nurse salaries for that general geographical area, city, etc. Salaries may influence where you decide to live however remember, when salaries are comparably higher generally the area cost of living is higher too.
Good luck.

Thank you comment icon Hi Sara! Thank you so much for the amazing insight you provided to Kiara! I actually had a follow up question I wanted to ask; in your professional opinion, which cities/areas across the nation are in need of more nurses? And what do the advancement opportunities in nursing look like (do you become a head nurse? administrative role? etc). Thank you so much in advance! David Ohta COACH
