    Those numbers do not reflect reality. Im an RN at a hospital in Pa and I make 20.65/hr. PATHETIC. Shows why we need a union.....

    Yeah, I am agreeing that the mean annual wage is a little high. I am maxed out in base salary, due to being a nurse so long.

    I'm a registered nurse in Puerto Rico working in the Emergency department and I only make
    $14.00/hr. This with 4 years experience and all the certifications. I have co-workers that have
    Been working at the ED for over 20 years and the most they make is $19/hr. :-(

    I agree with Bombero, it does depend on your location.

    Mass seems pretty accurate to me. just think its average, most people are going to make less but there are the people in boston with a lot of experience specializing in something that make a fortune. same with NY, the nurses in NYC are going to make a lot more than someone at Olean general or a smaller hospital like jones memorial. My friend just graduated and got her first job about 30 min north of Boston and makes 26/hr. It all depends on your location.
