Compare Your Staffing Costs to U.S. Average and Travel Nursing

AMN Healthcare developed the RN Labor Cost Comparison to enable hospitals and other healthcare facilities to calculate and compare their nurse staffing costs to the national average for nursing labor. The calculator also provides a comparison of facility nurse staffing cost and AMN travel nursing resources. Data for the calculations is from the 2011 KPMG Nursing Labor Cost Study and 2010 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) occupational wage estimates.
