Let's be honest, it's our nurses who are the real VIPs of the hospital game. Doctors are fine for treating and educating and diagnosing but it's our nurses who really take care of us in our time of need. Glad to find out the Washington state ranks second best state for nurses.

This is according to Wallet Hub and is based on opportunity and competition along with work environment.

First place goes to Arizona, if you're wondering.

Worst state for nurses? Maryland, of all places. Interesting.

Along with being 2nd best overall, Washington state also ranks 6th for most nurses per capita, 12th for annual salary and 4th for projected competition by 2028.
