What do nurses earn?

What do nurses earn?
State-by-state variations in wage agreements and classifications makes specifying registered nurse salaries and enrolled nurse salaries difficult.

The table provided below is a guide to pay rates for registered nurses and enrolled nurses across Australia and at various career levels.  It is however impossible to provide a comprehensive table of this nature which covers every possible nurse role across the country.  Therefore it is important to emphasise that this is only a guide and that any prospective nurse should check with their Human Resources contact or the relevant Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation body for more specific information.  This guide also does not take into consideration factors such as: working conditions, nurse to patient ratios, over-time allowance, salary packaging provisions, agency rates, nor any other allowances.

A range of links and resources are provided below to assist in determining the pay for nurses and midwives in Australia.
