Do RN men make any Money?
The US Dept of Labor reported that as of May 2004, only the lowest-paid 10 per cent of registered nurses in the United States earned less than $37,000 per year. The mid-range of median annual earnings of registered nurses (middle 50%) earned between $43,370 and $63,360. The highest 10 per cent earned more than $74,760 annually.
According to the government, on average RN’s make $53,450 in surgical hospitals and over $48K in home health care services, in nursing care facilities and when working in the offices of private physicians.
The American Nurses Association says that annually the average Clinical Nurse Specialist earns $41,226, the average Nurse Practitioner $71,000 and that Nurse Anesthetists pull down $113,000 on average.
Best Nursing School for Men
Two years ago, the American Assembly for Men in Nursing began a new tradition by annually giving a prize for, what in the opinion of its Board, was the best nursing school or college for men in the United States.
The purpose of the award is to recognize a school or college of nursing that has provided significant efforts in recruiting and retaining men in nursing, in providing men a supportive educational environment and in educating faculty, students and the community about the contributions men have and continue to make in the nursing profession.
The first ever AAMN’s Best Nursing School or College for Men Award went to East Carolina University in 2004. The 2005 recipient of the award was The University of Texas at Austin.
RNmen are just regular guys who regularly do extraordinary things.
