from By Scott E. Rupp
Medscape recently released the results of its RN/LPN Compensation Report for 2018, featuring the feedback of 10,282 nurses who reflected upon their salaries and pay from 2017. Based on the findings, the hospital continues to be the primary employer for RNs (52 percent), with 39 percent in inpatient settings and 13 percent in hospital-based outpatient settings. Earnings continue to be attractive for those in the field. Full-time registered nurses earned $81,000, while licensed practical nurses earned about half that, at $46,000.
