Highest Paying States for Travel Nurses

Which states are really worth the extra license fees? Let's dig into some data to find out.

Our map shows the highest paying states for travel nurses since July 2019, including crisis rate market fluctuations.

https://stellarnurse.ghost.io/content/images/2021/07/Weekly Pay-by-State--36-HoursWeek-Contracts-w-update.png
Highest paying states for travel nurses. Standardized to 36/hour week contracts to compare data accurately.

For more specific travel nurse salary by state, scroll through our table highlighting the highest paying states with detailed pay trends and job availability.

We've included the standard deviation. This shows you how the majority (68% to be exact) of pay offers spread above and below the average rates. Picture a bell curve.

For example, 68% of California travel nurse salaries are $2,137.63 +/- $541.10 = pay range of $1,596.53 - $2,678.73. We warned you we're nerds!

As you scroll through 51 states (including Washington DC) you'll notice a large standard deviation. This is larger than average due to the crisis rate fluctuations in the current job market.

View job availability per state in the "job count" column. This tracks our count and therefore doesn't encapsulate the entire market, but it's a very good snapshot of each state's job availability.

We removed specialties with very low job counts and supervisory roles. This keeps our data relevant to the travel nursing specialties with high pay AND regular job availability.

For a different view, we've got an interactive bubble chart displaying the highest paying travel nurse specialties by their job availability. Hover over the bubbles to identify the specialties.

Not all specialties have a regular high need for travelers. For example, RN's in Electrophysiology Lab (EP Lab) regularly have higher pay offerings, but don't have the plentiful job options that ICU or L&D nurses have.

If you aspire to work consistently in travel healthcare, gain experience in a specialty with higher job availability.

Travel Nurse Pay Breakdown

How do travel nurses get paid? Understanding this will help you compare pay offers and spot the jobs that are worth your relocation.

Travel nurses are typically hired as contracted temporary employees of travel nursing agencies, getting paid on a weekly basis to work in a variety of facilities.

The most common travel nurse contracts offered are for hospital inpatient units. These usually commit you to work:

  • 12 hours/shift
  • 3 shifts/week
  • 36 hours/week
  • 13 weeks total
  • 468 work hours total

Our interactive pay explorer standardizes all pay package data around these contract hours to accurately compare numbers.

How Much Do Travel Nurses Make?

A Pay Package Example

Here's an average offer for a Medical-Surgical Nurse working 36 hours/week:

  • $350 M&IE (Meals & Incidental Expenses) - Weekly
  • $2,400 Housing Stipend - Monthly
  • $500 Travel Reimbursement - One Time
  • $20 Base Rate - Hourly

It's confusing! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Let's break this offer down to view your potential pay per week and per hour. Convert all parts of your pay to a standardized rate, then combine to calculate.

Pay Package Offer Pay per Week (36 hrs) Pay per Hour
$350 M&IE Weekly $350 $9.72
$2,400 Housing Stipend Monthly $600 $16.67
$500 Travel Reimbursement One-time $38.46 $1.07
$20 Base Rate Hourly $720 $20
Total Gross Pay (Pre-Taxes) $1,708.46 $47.46

Keep in mind there are several more deductions that may come out of your travel nursing paycheck:

  • Taxes based on your tax home rates
  • Agency health insurance - rates can start at $20/week (optional)
  • Agency 401k retirement plans (optional)

Taxable vs Non-Taxable Pay

Following on from our pay package example above, your travel nurse pay is made up of taxable and non-taxable income.

Weekly Income per Offer Taxable?
$350 M&IE (Meals & Incidental Expenses) N
$600 Housing Stipend N
$38.46 Travel Reimbursement N
$720 Hourly Base Rate Y
$1,708.46 Total $720 Taxed

Notice that almost half of this pay package is not taxed. Cha-ching!

Non-taxable reimbursements, or "Per Diem" pay, are based on daily maximum rates set by the government.  Check out gsa.gov's Per Diem rates for your next contract location - they even have a mobile app for convenience.

Travel nurses are eligible for Per Diem non-taxable pay reimbursements when working away from your tax home. You must duplicate living/housing expenses per IRS rules.

You can still get temporary assignments without travel, the difference is your income will be fully taxed.
