A recent article on USA Today claims that on male nurses make more than female nurses.

The article said:

even in an occupation that women overwhelmingly dominate, they (women)[women] still earn less than men

Then they mentioned that men earn 5,000$ more than women:

 

[...]

The gender gap for registered nurses' salaries amounts to a little over $5,000 yearly on average and it hasn't budged in more than 20 years. That pay gap may not sound big — it's smaller than in many other professions.

The article also states that only 10% of all nurses are male and 90% are female.

I am not sure whether this true or not, is. Is there any evidence which proveto support the following claimabove claims?
