Registered Nurse Pay in the Mid-Eastern U.S.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported earlier this year that there over 2,986,000 registered nurses (RNs) working in the U.S. as of May 2020.  Just under 477,000 registered nurses were employed in the Mid-Eastern U.S. region, an area which encompasses five states and the District of Columbia.  BLS data revealed the region to be one of the better regions in the nation for RN pay.  Although Delaware and Pennsylvania had RN annual mean wage levels below the national average, about two-thirds of the registered nurses in the region lived in states with RN annual mean wage levels that were higher than the national average.  Moreover, three of the ten best states nationally for RN annual mean wages were in the region.  Further review of BLS data from May 2020 detailed the following about registered nurse pay in the Mid-Eastern U.S. region:
