What do nurses earn?

Date of Posting: 18-10-2010
 
UPDATED: 7th January 2014

State-by-state variations in wage agreements and classifications makes specifying salaries for nurses a challenging process.

The table provided below is a guide to salaries for nurses across Australia and at various career levels.  It is however impossible to provide a comprehensive table of this nature which covers every possible nurse role across the country.  Therefore it is important to emphasise that this is only a guide and that any prospective nurse should check with their Human Resources contact or the relevant Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation body for more specific information.  This guide also does not take into consideration factors such as: working conditions, nurse to patient ratios, over-time allowance, salary packaging provisions, agency
rates, nor any other allowances.

A range of links and resources are provided below to assist in determining the pay and conditions for nurses and midwives in Australia.
