Who says you have to leave town to earn top pay and have a stimulating career? According to a salary survey, registered nurses in Modesto earn the second-highest pay in the nation when the local cost of living is factored into the equation.

The research revealed that $100,780 was the average annual pay for registered nurses in Modesto, where the annual cost of living is $67,380 for a family of three. That means 67 percent of a nurse’s income goes to housing, food and other monthly bills, leaving plenty of extra cash for fun and investing in a child’s education.
