Sorting Out the Nursing Population and Salary in AZ

Over 70,000 RNs are currently at work in Arizona and a few thousand others have gone into advanced specialties such as midwife, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, and nurse anesthetist.(1)

So what do working nurses in Arizona bring home salary-wise? Remember, salaries for nurses can vary widely, even within state boundaries. Years of experience, level of education, specialty, facility and location all matter significantly. Currently over 89% of all RNs work in an urban or metro are compared to those working in remote facilities.(2)

Here's an example: The bulk of staff RNs working in Phoenix earn between $51,000 and $69,000 annually.(3) Phoenix is the largest metropolitan area in the state and has a high demand for nurses.

Here's a salary-fueling tip for Arizona RNs:

There is usually such a need for nurses in the Phoenix area that travel jobs remain popular and well-paying, particularly during the height of the summer when the appeal for looking for work in sizzling hot Phoenix is at its lowest, but nursing demand is highest.

The Arizona Nurses Association is a popular statewide organization that promotes and supports the state's working nurse population. For information on nursing licensure visit the Arizona State Board of Nursing.
