Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Kentucky


As already described, nursing informatics salaries can differ by numerous factors like job location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph presented below, I have collected recent data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an attempt to provide a realistic display of what a professional employed in the nursing informatics field actually earns, based upon salaries listed by these career online sites.

Even though the widely cited 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey states that the average salary in the US is averaging around 98k, the numbers for Kentucky tell a different story.

For Kentucky, you can observe that the median average salary hovers around $69,562, and the highest salary averages around $85,779.

If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see bigger averages in all these ranges, nevertheless this is certainly not what we see!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Kentucky

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 Kentucky.

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.
