Comfyshoes- Registered nursing jobs are available everywhere.
There is such a shortage of nursing jobs that many hospitals offer tuition reimbursement for nursing students in exchange for a guaranteed job upon graduation.
The average registered nurse makes about $70,000 a year. However, the agency nursing jobs in which a staffing company hires a nurse earns even higher wages. These nurses often work several part-time jobs and make about $40-$50 an hour as independent contractors.
In some cases they could make more especially if they are certified.
The advantage to contract work is that they get to work in a variety of settings and can select jobs with the work schedule that they want as well as earn a higher salary. The downside is the lack of benefits.
