Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Minnesota
As already explained in a previous post, nursing informatics salaries can differ by quite a few factors such as, 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 effort to convey a realistic display of what a person employed in the nursing informatics domain actually earns, based on salaries listed by these career sites.
Although the widely referenced 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey states that the average salary in the US is hitting a 98k high, the figures for Minnesota indicate a different story.
With regards to Minnesota, you will notice that the median average salary is around $68,230, and the highest salary averages around $84,159.
If the HIMSS survey were to be accurate, we would see bigger averages in all these ranges, nonetheless this is clearly not what the real world data shows!
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 Minnesota.
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.
