Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Illinois


As formerly mentioned in another post, nursing informatics salaries can vary by a number of circumstances like, education background, position title, job location, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph listed below, I have collected up to date data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an attempt to present a realistic display of what a professional working in the nursing informatics field actually earns, as determined by salaries listed by these career websites.

While the widely quoted 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey states that the average salary in the US hovers around 98k, the data for Illinois displays a striking variation from that data.

With regards to Illinois, you will find that the median average salary borders around $71,616, and the highest salary averages near $88,313.

If the HIMSS survey were to be realistic, we would see higher averages in all these ranges, nonetheless this is definitely not the case!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Illinois

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 Illinois.

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.
