What does a Nursing professional get paid?
Nursing jobs come with different responsibilities, work settings and compensation estimates, which is why it’s crucial to weigh your options before taking on a specific role. In terms of salaries, nursing pays are influenced by location, season, specialty and other economic factors. That said, most nurses fall into the following salary range:
- $60 000 - $180 000 for permanent positions, depending on the specialty
- $300 - $1500 per day for locum positions, depending on the specialty
Taking on a permanent position within nursing typically provides more job stability, day-to-day consistency and greater access to promotion opportunities at medical facilities. Alternatively, working as a locum allows you to have a more flexible schedule, service patients in remote areas and experience the work/life offered by different employers. Some nursing professionals choose to supplement their full-time jobs with locum roles to gain more experience in a particular practice area or to increase their earning potential.
Whatever reason you have for seeking out locum or permanent positions, Careers Connections can help you find, apply for and secure nursing jobs that match your preferences.
