The amount of nursing home care work nurses are earning has more than doubled in the past decade, according to new research.
In fact, nurses earned more than any other profession in 2016.
More than 30% of the nursing home health care workers earned more in 2016 than they did in 2014, according the American Nurses Association.
That’s up from just 6% in 2006, according an ANA survey.
In the nursing workforce, nurses are expected to provide care for patients from birth through death.
But they have also seen a steep increase in demand for home nursing care care and care for adults with disabilities, especially as more and more adults have disabilities.
In a new study released this week, the ANA looked at the pay of nurses in the U.S. and compared it to the wages of other nursing home workers.
The study found nurses earned $18,000 more than the average nursing home worker, while nursing home administrators, nurses, and other workers in the health care sector earned more.
The ANA study also found nurses earn more than other nurses when compared to other professions.
Nearly half of all nurses and home health aides were paid more than nursing home staff in 2016, and those who did work in nursing homes earned more, too.
This is a significant increase over the previous year when the study found the average nurse earned about $18 an hour, according and a spokesperson for the AVA.
Some other professions that were paying more in the first half of 2016 were health care and professional services workers, according Toensing.
Health care workers earn about $15 an hour and have seen a jump in salaries over the past year.
A VA health care aide earns about $10 an hour.
Nurses, meanwhile, are still paying more than all other professions combined.
Health care aides are still paid about $8 an hour but pay more than home health workers.
The VA pays about $12 an hour for nurses.
The health care workforce is expected to grow by nearly 3.7 million jobs in 2021, the government said.
That’s up nearly 20% from the 2.7m jobs the economy lost in the year prior, accordingto the U:S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In addition, the average American worker is expected make more than $65,000 in 2021.
The economy added almost 4 million jobs last year, according government figures.
