According to http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/compensation-issues/rn-average-hourly-wage-salary-for-all-50-states-calif-tops-the-list-at-101k.html Iowa nurses are paid an average of $55,040 per year - $26.46 per hour. That was good for DEAD LAST in the nation! The highest paid nurses were in California, and are paid almost twice as much. This is from a Sept 2016 article.

But it has been that way for years. About 5 years ago I saw in the Boone DMACC nursing wing that out of 51 states and territories (Puerto Rico was included) ...... Iowa was ranked 50th, beating Puerto Rico. Small wonder why low wage Iowa loses trained people (think nurses and also teachers) to other states. No wonder why Iowa's population growth is stagnant.
