Solano County Nurses Earn Most in U.S., Study Finds
Nurses in Solano County are the highest paid in their occupation in the U.S., according to the 2013 Easy NCLEX study. Researchers examined salaries of registered nurses and licensed practical nurses and compared the data to the cost of living in each region or state. The study found that RNs in Solano County earn an average annual salary of $119,000, compared with an annual cost of living of about $71,000. Liz Jacobs -- spokesperson for the California Nurses Association -- said that the study is misleading because it presupposes that the nurses who work in Solano County also live there.
