Nurses are financially better off in most other countries

In most similarly rich countries, Registered Nurses (RNs) will not only earn more money, but will also pay less for most of their living expenses. For example, in New Zealand, RNs will earn 32% more money on average than in the UK, while the cheaper cost of living there means even less money is required for their expenses, so the nurses have in fact 47% more money in their pockets. As you can see below, they seem to be financially better off almost everywhere else. Data gathered in October 2017.
