Salary is a top issue for most RNs, particularly when it comes to benchmarking to peers.

A recent Yahoo finance article says U.S. nurses earn an average salary that is more than double the global average but, as a nurse, you are probably more concerned about your personal earnings and wage potential over the course of your career, than with what nurses make on the other side of the globe.
