Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Colorado


As already mentioned in a different post, nursing informatics salaries differ by a number of different reasons: for example, education background, location, software in use, position title, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph further down, I have collected recent data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an effort to present a realistic picture of what somebody working in the nursing informatics field actually earns, according to salaries listed by these career sites.

Even though the widely cited 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey is pretty much optimistic in reporting that the average salary in the US is hitting a 98k high, the figures for Colorado show somewhat striking numbers.

With regards to Colorado, you will find that the median average salary hovers around $68,862, and the highest salary averages near $84,881.

If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see bigger averages in all these ranges, yet this is definitely not what the real world data shows!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Colorado

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 Colorado.

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 CO.
