Idaho Nursing Salaries
In the bigger cities such as Boise, RN’s earn a starting salary ranging between $50,000 and $62,000 per year. If you can enhance your skills and obtain an advanced practice degree your salary will increase exponentially. Since the state consists of many small towns a number of nurses prefer to be closer to home and work in the rural areas. There are many job opportunities in these towns although the salary is not quite as high. If you can stick to a metropolitan area, you will find the salaries are higher and a diverse array of jobs in hospitals, emergency care centers and private doctor’s offices are available.
