Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Alaska


As previously mentioned in another post, nursing informatics salaries differ by quite a few reasons such as, location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph listed below, I have collected current data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an effort to provide a realistic overview of what somebody working in the nursing informatics arena actually earns, based on salaries listed by these career online sites.

Even though the widely quoted 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey is, in my opinion, idealistic in reporting that the average salary in the US is hitting a 98k high, the stats for Alaska show a somewhat striking difference.

For Alaska, you will notice that the median average salary borders around $76,345, and the highest salary averages around $94,144.

If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see much higher averages in all these ranges, however this is obviously not what the real world data shows!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Alaska

To obtain the data above, I used salary.com as a reference, since in my experience, their salaries tend to be very close to what I have seen across different cities in the USA.

We see the low salary average, the median salary average and the high salary average for nursing informatics positions across different cities in Alaska.

Below those figures, we have the HIMSS inflated nursing informatics salary average of $98,702.

The next two bars show average salaries for jobs that have the title Nursing Informatics Specialist (NI1*), and the other bar shows jobs that have the KEYWORD Nursing Informatics (NI2*).

This means that if a job is advertised as “Nursing Informatics Clinical Director,” and another job is advertised as “Nursing Informatics Entry-Level Trainer,” then both salaries will be average since both titles have the keyword “nursing informatics.”

What the indeed.com salaries on the graph show is that many times even average salaries won’t give us a realistic picture of what salary to expect out there.

Finally we have the simplyhired.com salary average for nursing informatics in AK in 2013.
