Which type of nurse gets $10,000 per month?

I know that I have to go to college and get my associates degree and the i"ll be working. It"s a nurse that goes to their patient"s house and is a nurse. It's in Stockton, California.

You realize $10k a month is $120,000 a year? That would be a nurse who got a Bachelor's and has worked their way up the licensing system through continuing education, received the best licensing and certifications available, and then found a highly demanding, high stress job which warrants that kind of money.

You START OUT with a degree but then to move up the ladder you have to apply and take more classes as you work. It's not just two years of college and bam you're done.

i talked to a nurse that used to come to the house and took care of my dad. she told me all the info but not what type of nurse
Report as
She very likely did not start out making that much. Most nurses start out making $1,000 to $2,000 a month. There are different license levels, and you have to work your way up through them. So her pay was based off of her *experience* and off the job, not just her being a certain type of nurse.

Plus, the lower the amount of education, the longer it's going to take to break into that income bracket.

I don't know, my wife has her MSN & is getting through her NP and she doesn't make that much. When you find out please pass the info forward, why go through 8 years of school when you can make more $ in 2

You aren't going to make that on an associates degree. The highest paid nurse is a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) at $135k. They have a masters degree.

If she worked through an agency call the agency she worked for. I am guessing that was before her travel deductions.

The nurses who have specialization in ICCU, ICU, OT, PBU, can get even more than this.
