salary for nurses

Don't you find that salary for nurses is a bit too low.Sometimes they do two jobs to make a decent living.They do have to study very hard and they are not really compensated.Good health is important to everyone,don't you think that those who provide it,should be adequately compensated.

Hi! In my country (the Philippines), there are so many students studying Nursing in the hope that they would land a job in the US. I am currently a teacher here in the US, and if you compare the amount of money one would be getting as a nurse (or a teacher, for that matter) in my country, that is nothing compared to the salary that he/she would be getting here in the US. Despite the economic letdown, there's still a demand for nurses here. But the American parents who are nurses that I communicate with here in the US would tell me that their paycheck, indeed, is not enough. I guess it really depends on the situation.
