Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Florida
As already outlined in another post, nursing informatics salaries can vary by quite a few circumstances like, job location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.
In the graph below, I have collected recent data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an effort to present a realistic picture of what an individual working in the nursing informatics arena actually earns, determined by salaries listed by these career internet sites.
Even though the widely referenced 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 results for Florida clearly show a relatively remarkable variation.
With regards to Florida, you can observe that the median average salary borders around $70,672, and the highest salary averages near $86,502.
If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see much higher averages in all these ranges, however this is clearly not the case!
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 Florida.
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.
