How much does a nurse make a year?

I’m thinking of going to a school for nursing. Where can I find the information, how much a nurse makes a year and how long do I have to go to school?

  1. A national survey reported nurses salaries in May 2013. According to the data, registered nurses earned average salaries of $69,110. Reported salaries ranged from $44,970 for those in the lowest 10% to over $96,630 for RNs in the highest 90% of earners.

  2. Last year, as an RN, I made $66,253.16 exactly.
    (I recently found this out when I got my taxes done.)
    This does not include the money they took out from taxes, malpractice insurance, and health insurance benefits, and 401k.
    Before all of that, I probably made 75,000? Not sure.
    I worked an average of 3 days a week, 12 hour shifts.
    This is my second year working as a nurse, and I make the same amount as I did right out of school. It does vary from state to state, depending on the demand. I work at a hospital in Greater Atlanta, in the Emergency Room. I have an associate’s degree, if that helps any. Nurses with bachelor’s degrees do not make any more than I do, unless they are in a management position. My mother, on the other hand, has been working in a smaller hospital in the ER for about 25 years, and she makes well over $100,000 per year, with an associates degree. Nurses are paid on an hourly basis, not a set amount per year. It can range anywhere from $25-80 an hour. It is the most rewarding and exciting career I could have chosen, and I love it!!
