Nursing has been an increasingly lucrative career path for medical professionals working the field over the last few decades due increased demand caused by the retirement of baby boomers.
Researchers estimate that there will be 1 million baby boomer nursing professionals retiring over the next 15 year, which will lead to a nationwide shortage of around 200,000 nurses by next year.
To help motivate students to join the nursing industry, hospitals and medical centers are offering attractive salaries and benefits packages. Here are some of the top paying career fields for nurses and their median salaries:
- Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist – $143,739
- Nurse Practitioner – $107,480
- Certified Nurse Midwife – $102,390
- Mental Health Nurse – $101,602
- Orthopedic Nurse – $101,034
