What supplies do nurses buy? And to say they don't make much more...my ex DIL is a Nurse Practitioner and makes $95 an hour, her malpractice insurance is provide by the hospital she works for and she gets a wonderful benefit package. I don't know too many teachers who make anything close to that.

Most teachers work 10 months and are paid for 10 months, they don't get a 2 month paid vacation

SIL teaches HS - 65k, housing including utilities/maintenance within walking distance, medical services incl. specialists on site, full meal plan at two cafeterias. Poor thing has to pay a member ship to the indoor pool.

That gives them two months unemployment or a summer job. A few in my area run day care for their normal students.

Congratulations to the young lady!

In bush Alaska almost all schools provide free housing and utilities. Plus good pay and benefits. No state income tax either. Since they don't have foo foo shopping and dining places you actually end up saving tons of money. Just gotta deal with bush life and keep a good attitude.

Big difference between a Nurse Practitioner and an RN. An RN has 5 years with a BS and the RN together whereas a Nurse Practitioner has at least 2 more years. Yes, you buy personal insurance for what ever the hospital doesn't pay. You buy your supplies too. No, nurses do not make 90 K. In OKCity an RN is about 50K. Believe me I know!!!!!!!!!!! That is also for a Charge Nurse!

She gets $65k a year, free housing, board and utilities paid? Is that what you are saying?

Where does she live that has medical services on site? Where does she teach?
