Top job aggregation services, such as Employment Crossing, have myriad nursing jobs posted by employers and searched through by potential applicants every single day.

With a median annual salary of $135,000, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA) have some of the highest salaries in the nursing profession.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners focus on providing care for patients suffering from psychiatric and mental disorders.

Psychiatric nurses are also among the highest paid in the field; with average annual salaries of around $95,000.

Nurse midwives specialize in handling childbirth and providing prenatal and postpartum care.

The work of a neonatal nurse revolves around caring for sick or premature infants.
