Specialization and Geography you are working are important factors in determining pay. Some stated pay more than others.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics , the median annual salary for registered nurses as of 2016 was $65,470. Remember, that means that half of the workers earned more (as high as $94,720) and half earned less, but that number should give you a good idea of how high nurse's starting salary to be.
Depending on the level of expertise and areas of specialization, the number of years experience a nurse gain, and the city and state in which they work, the RN salary can range quite a bit.

The salaries for CNAs can begin at $19,000 for entry-level cna jobs to as much as $36,000 for those with more experience. In addition to the base salaries, a certified nursing assistant may receive a signing bonus due to the high demand. A nursing shortage is also caused by nurses upgrading their skills and moving onto other careers in the medical field. That is why cna salaries tend to increase over time. The labor of department also shows that the trend in nursing demand will continue to increase for the foreseeable future due to the aging demographics in our country and the continued need for medical care.
