Registered Nurses are among the most in-demand, highly respected medical professionals in the country. They enjoy one of the highest average salaries, rock-solid job stability, and great employee benefits. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the average pay for registered nurses at around $64,690 per year or about $31.00 per hour – both of which are well above national salary averages. The job is so highly thought of that US News named it the Best Job in the Country for 2012.
