In certain markets that will almost certainly result in a larger salary than would a nurse who speaks only English.

Here, you stand a better chance getting a clinic job in certain parts of the city, but in big hospitals I don't think there is an advantage. Large hospitals hire translators for all languages for liability issues I'm sure.

Anything that is valuable to the employer and makes you stand out in the crowd will help you land a job before someone else. So I agree with everyone else it depends if your employer serves a large population that speaks Spanish. In homecare you would be valuable if the agency had Spanish speaking clients. Hospitals have translators but they are not just standing nearby . Time is precious . Your ability to speak Spanish would be an asset.
