Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Massachusetts


As already mentioned in a prior post, nursing informatics salaries can change because of factors like job location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph further down, I have collected up to date data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an effort to offer a realistic overview of what a professional employed in the nursing informatics field actually earns, according to salaries listed by these career online sites.

Even though the widely acclaimed 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey published that the average salary in the US averages around 98k, the statistics for Massachusetts demonstrate a somewhat different picture.

With regards to Massachusetts, you can observe that the median average salary hovers around $81,246, and the highest salary averages around $100,188.

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

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Massachusetts

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 Massachusetts.

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.
