Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 South Dakota


As previously outlined, nursing informatics salaries can vary due to numerous factors like, education background, position title,  job location, software in use, size of hospital, etc.

In the graph listed below, I have collected recent data from indeed.com, salary.com, and simplyhired.com, in an attempt to offer a realistic display of what a professional employed in the nursing informatics arena actually earns, as per salaries listed by these career internet sites.

Even though the widely referenced 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey is pretty much optimistic in reporting that the average salary in the US is hitting a 98k high, the results for South Dakota present a striking different picture.

In the case of South Dakota, you will notice that the median average salary borders around $55,387, and the highest salary averages close to $68,300.

If the HIMSS survey were to be accurate, we would see much higher averages in all these ranges, nevertheless this is definitely not what we see!

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 South Dakota.

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.
