In recent years registered nursing students have become coveted by the United States as they face a rising shortage in nurses, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in many years. This is particularly true in highly rural regions where medical assistance can get quite scarce. Although there is a shortage in many areas there is also a high potential for earning as the Bureau of Labor Statistics proposes a 19% growth by the year 2022 and a high end yearly salary of $94,720, with a median pay rate of $65,470.
In order to earn more, registered nurses should obtain a higher educational degree than the minimum requirement for licensure, which is normally an Associate’s degree, although in some cases a 3 year hospital training diploma may be earned.
