  • Because of the skills and knowledge required, registered nurses can earn respectable salaries. Depending on the location, the type of health care facility, and the availability of registered nurses in that area, nurses may earn anywhere from $50,000 to $70,000 per year. Some registered nurses earn well over $80,000 per year for their work, and most nurses also receive additional bonuses, with child care and educational expenses provided for. In general, registered nurses working in hospitals receive the highest salaries, with home healthcare facilities and nursing home nurses receiving the lowest salaries. This is a relative generalization, however—salaries ultimately depend on factors such as the size and funding of the facility, the population of the urban area, and the relative demand for registered nurses.

  • It depends on the job. RNs can make $30-$50+ an hour with a 2 year degree. My son is a RN and graduated when he was 19. By the time he was 22 he was making $50 an hour. While in school he worked in cardiac care so he was able to go into cardiac care right out of school. It is one of the higher paying areas of nursing.
