Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Iowa


As already mentioned, nursing informatics salaries differ because of a number of factors such as, job 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 attempt to convey a realistic picture of what someone employed in the nursing informatics field actually earns, based on salaries listed by these career online sites.

While the widely cited 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey reports that the average salary in the US is hitting a 98k high, the data for Iowa demonstrates somewhat different story.

With regards to Iowa, you can observe that the median average salary hovers around $65,184, and the highest salary averages around $81,273.

If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see higher averages in all these ranges, yet this is clearly not the case!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Iowa

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 Iowa.

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.comsalary average for nursing informatics.
