But, it should be said that it is extremely difficult to get a job as a nurse in this tiny country.

The Lowest Paying Countries

Countries with the lowest salaries are often those with the greatest nursing shortages, as qualified nurses who can emigrate for better wages often do so.

This can have a considerable impact on working conditions.

Many of these countries don’t have the financial wherewithal to raise salaries, so even though demand is high, salaries may remain low.

The flip side of that equation is that jobs may be more readily available.

However, that’s not always the case.

For example, in the Philippines, wages are low but nursing jobs are scarce; the Philippines is a net exporter of nurses, as is India.

Many of those nurses travel to the UK and US.

In 2016, 13 percent of nurses in the UK were Filipino and 28 percent were Indian, according to an article in TechTimes.

The Highest Paying Countries

PayWizard.org data from 2012 indicated the five highest paying countries for nurses (in US dollars) were Belgium at $16.97 an hour, Sweden at $17.27 an hour, Germany at $19.17 an hour, Spain at $21.97 an hour and The Netherlands, which topped the list at $22.08 an hour.

The US, at $16.44 an hour, was not among the top five.

An article in Euspert, which drew data from sources like Insider Monkey and different nursing surveys, rated the following countries in the top five for 2016: Denmark, Australia, Ireland, the US and Luxembourg.

Average annual salaries in those countries were $54,000, $56,000, $64,000, $70,000 and $82,000, respectively, according to Euspert.

Average wages per hour based on a 2080-hour work year were $25.96 for Denmark, $26.92 for Australia, $30.77 for Ireland, $33.65 for the US and $39.42 for Luxembourg.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the average annual salary for RNs was $71,000 as of May 2015.

Interestingly, the Euspert article noted that none of the highest paying countries in its survey were among those countries that offered the highest job satisfaction ratings.

Those honors went to Finland, Poland, Sweden/Belgium (tie), Switzerland/Norway (tie) and The Netherlands. Euspert notes that factors like experience can affect salaries.

In Norway, for example, experienced nurses can earn as much as $100,000 in US dollars each year.

Luxembourg is a very tiny country which offers top pay – as high as $125,000 a year for experienced nurses, according to Euspert – but there are very few job openings because the health care system and country are so small.
