Nursing Informatics Salary 2013 Virginia


As formerly outlined in a different post, nursing informatics salaries can vary because of various reasons like, position title, job location, education background, 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 attempt to present a realistic overview of what somebody working in the nursing informatics domain actually earns, according to salaries listed by these career internet sites.

While the widely acclaimed 2011 HIMSS Nursing Informatics workforce survey is, in my opinion, idealistic in reporting that the average salary in the US is averaging around 98k, the results for Virginia indicate a rather remarkable difference.

With regards to Virginia, you will find that the median average salary is around $72,533, and the highest salary averages near $89,484.

If the HIMSS survey were to be realistic, we would see higher averages in all these ranges, yet this is certainly not the case!

Average Nursing Informatics Salaries in Virginia

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 Virginia.

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.
