Salary for a Nurse in Nevada - NV

The average annual salary for nurses in Nevada is slightly higher than the national average as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Various factors affect salaries, including the type of facility at which one is employed, the geographical area (urban salaries are typically higher than rural salaries), the economic climate, and a person’s educational background and experience in the field of nursing. Nurses make up the largest portion of health care workers; most are employed in hospitals. Other facilities that employ nurses include physicians’ offices, outpatient clinics, long-term nursing care facilities, home health care services, and governmental and social service agencies. In addition to salary, employers may offer flexible work schedules, educational benefits, bonuses, and family-friendly policies to attract and retain nursing staff.
