7 High-Paying Nursing Jobs

Megan Malugani | Monster Contributing Writer

Nurse Practitioner

Median Salary: $83,194
Typical Requirements: Master’s degree and certification as a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP) in specialty area

Most states require nurse practitioners (NPs) to work collaboratively with physicians; however, roughly a dozen states allow NPs to open their own clinics, while a dozen or so others require NPs to work under the supervision of a physician. Regardless of the physician relationship, nurse practitioners provide a wide range of health services, usually specializing in areas such as family practice, women’s health or pediatrics in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and private practice. (Emergency room and pediatric NPs tend to earn the highest salaries.) Depending on the state, NPs often diagnose and treat acute illnesses, injuries and infections.

    Again this depends on which State you are working, because that's about what nurses makes in New York and California

    LMAO! I've been a charge nurse on an Oncology unit for 3 years and only grossed $45,000 this year. NOT accurate!
