Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Louisiana


As previously mentioned, nursing informatics salaries vary by different factors such as, job location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph presented below, I have collected up to date data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an attempt to offer a realistic display of what someone working in the nursing informatics field actually earns, in accordance with salaries listed by these career sites.

While the widely cited 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey claims that the average salary in the US hovers around 98k, the data for Louisiana demonstrate a very different story.

With regards to Louisiana, you will notice that the median average salary is around $69,154, and the highest salary averages near $85,276.

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

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Louisiana

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 Louisiana.

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.
