Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Texas
As formerly outlined, nursing informatics salaries differ because of many circumstances 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 provide a realistic picture of what a person working in the nursing informatics domain actually earns, as per salaries listed by these career online sites.
Even though the widely acclaimed 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey is pretty much optimistic in reporting that the average salary in the US is averaging around 98k, the figures for Texas demonstrate that this is not the case.
With regards to Texas, you can see that the median average salary is around $70,303, and the highest salary averages close to $86,693.
If the HIMSS survey were to be accurate, we would see much higher averages in all these ranges, yet this is clearly 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 Texas.
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.
