Locum Tenems says in my area CRNAs straight off graduation/the boards are getting $135-$149k/yr.
I have a lot of relatives (more than 20!) who are RNs or NPs, if you include LPNs & MDs there are close to 4 doz family members (my dad was from a family of 11 brothers and sisters, none of them had less than five kids, I am one of the youngest grandkids).
In this area none of the RNs make less than $70k, but they are working long hours, or have been RNs for a while, and have all the CC/admin/etc stuff that makes em more valuable.
If a dealership got me arrested on something like this, man I'd be so vengeful,
