Nurse Practitioner Pay in New England

May 2020 data released earlier this year by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) put nurse practitioner (NP) employment in the United States at more than 211,000.  The six-state New England region held more than 12,600 nurse practitioner jobs at that time.  BLS data indicated New England to be a moderately good one for nurse practitioner pay, despite the fact that three states in the region had a NP annual mean wage level that was below the national average. The other three states in the region, all of whom had NP annual mean wage levels higher than the national average, were home to three-quarters of the region's NPs. Moreover, half the NPs in the region lived in Massachusetts, a state that ranked among the ten best states in the country for nurse practitioner annual mean wages. A closer examination of BLS data from May 2020 shows the following about nurse practitioner pay in New England:
