Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Ohio
As formerly discussed in another post, nursing informatics salaries vary by a number of factors such as, job location, education background, position title, software in use, size of hospital, etc.
In the graph below, I have collected up to date data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an attempt to deliver a realistic display of what a person working in the nursing informatics field actually earns, based upon salaries listed by these career internet sites.
Although the widely quoted 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey reports that the average salary in the US hovers around 98k, the numbers for Ohio paint a different picture.
In the case of Ohio, you will find that the median average salary borders around $73,140, and the highest salary averages near $90,192.
If the HIMSS survey were to be credible, we would see higher averages in all these ranges, however this is certainly not the case!
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 Ohio.
Below those figures, we have the HIMSS inflated nursing informatics salary average of $98,702, which I debunked, here.
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.
