Searching For The Highest Pay In Nursing Careers

By Harvey Underwood

Nursing consists of the most amount of employees in the medical field. Within the nursing profession there are many different types of or degrees of nursing making it difficult for the nursing student to choose their best course of action. Job security and salary are the two most important factors when determining what type of career in nursing you want to pursue. Demand and salary of nurses and the choices they make in their career is determined by statistical data. Proper education can ensure a higher paying nursing job in various fields. Management responsibilities are not as significant as the job of the clinic nurses in this field.

The first is the CRNA:

The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is paid at roughly one-hundred thousand as a yearly salary. Practice as an RN and graduate school is required to work in this high paying nursing career.

The CRNA will work closely with the anesthesiologist during surgery. This makes the nursing experience one that is less a personal interaction with the patent and more about technical skills and an interest in surgery. Following is the NP:

NP stands for nurse practitioner that works under the licensed physician giving personal care to patients. The duties of the NP are all about patient care and can include some tests and minor procedures or patient exams. Nurse practitioners are offered a different level of independence from state to state, including the ability to write prescriptions without consent of a licensed doctor. Being able to build a relationship with patients and still having a significantly high income can be achieved through a career as a nurse practitioner.

Being a CNS

CNS, or clinical nurse specialists, give aid to doctors, educate individuals, research and provide supervision over different projects. CNS need to obtain a Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) and additional certification for their designated field.

The specialist works in a clinical specialty where they are educated and trained in their field of medicine. A CNS may work under an oncologist and have a certification in oncology to work with patients that have cancer. A sample of specializations for CNS include cardiology, geriatrics, pediatrics and psychiatry. The yearly salary of a CNS in these specialization can make roughly seventy-five thousand. This varies depending on the specialty and many other factors.

Level of education and nursing practice determine the pay rate. The pay scales will vary and are based on national averages.
