These states offer the best and worst pay for nurses


There is a shortage of nurses in the United States, with the number of unfilled positions expected to rise to over 1 million by 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nurses frequently are the unsung heroes of the healthcare industry, providing essential care and dealing directly with patients.
However, depending on which state you hail from, the nurses in your area might be more or less “unsung” in terms of their wages, according to a new study from GOBankingRates.
The study looked at the mean salary for nurses in every state and ranked them by this figure. The study also included two other statistics for reference, including a state’s employment rate per 1,000 jobs and the location quotient, which is the ratio of a state’s employment for nurses compared to national levels.
The study revealed large disparities in how much nurses should expect to earn in different parts of the country, with nurses in California — the top-ranked state — earning more than six figures on average and their counterparts in South Dakota, — the state with the lowest mean wages — earning just over half that much.
