American Nurses Get Better Pay CHICAGO (UP)—Beginning salaries of nurses In general hospitals have increased an average $32 monthly in the past three years, according to the American Hospital Association. A survey of 2,206 American hospitals showed the average salary for beginning general duty nurses was $165 In 1947. Over the same period a $44 increase in mental hospital duty placed the starting salary at $194 per month. In addition, more than 53 per cent of the hospitals reported extra pay for night and evening shifts.

"Because nurses' food and rent costs thus remained constant, salary Increases are even more significant than in other industries whose employes had to purchase maintenance at inflated costs," Bugbee added.
