In case you didn't know, National Nurses Week begins May 6. In honor of that, I decided to take a look at how Idaho ranks when it comes to providing a good place for nurses to have a career. What I found may be surprising to you.

According to Wallet Hub, Idaho ranks at #3 when it comes to the highest salaries for nurses when adjusted for our cost of living here. We also come in fairly high when it comes to nursing opportunities and competition landing at #14 in the nation.

It's not all sunshine and roses for nurses in Idaho, though. The environment that nurses work in is not ideal in Idaho as we're all the way down at #30 among the states.
