Gender Pay Gap Persists in Nursing
Health Leaders Media

The gender pay gap in the United States may vary according to who’s measuring it—the White House says women earn 77% of what men earn, while a Pew Research Center survey says women earn 84% of what men earn—but it’s always there, even in the female-dominated nursing profession.

In fact, that gap is about $5,148 per year when adjusted for factors such as education and experience. And according to a study, nursing’s gender pay gap hasn’t narrowed in 25 years.
