ELITE LEARNING’S NEWLY RELEASED 2018 NURSING SALARY GUIDE

A comprehensive online learning destination, Elite Learning has recently announced the results of its 2018 nationwide nursing salary survey. The survey which includes more than 22,0000 responses from nurses at every level LPN to advanced practice, focusing on specialization, location, education, and benefits was conducted by ADVANCE Healthcare Network, an Elite Learning company.

Researchers found that, within the top 20 specialties, the average salary is 23 % higher for nursing professionals who are pursuing and obtaining additional knowledge through ongoing and specialized education. Medical/Surgical was the most commonly reported specialty; “on average” these nurses earned more than 17 % more than those without higher education. Out of the 68 specialty areas represented in the survey, 65 showed a positive correlation between education and salary.

“This year’s Nursing Salary Guide has the highest recorded response rate since the survey started 10 years ago,” said Janet Blanner, General Manager of Elite Learning. “Comprised of 35 questions, the findings conclude that continuing education, including the addition of specialized certifications, remains critical to nurses who want to learn new skills and increase their salary potential.”

In addition they found that, nurses with 6-15 years’ experience earn 20-25 % higher than nurses with 5 years or less experience. For nurses with 16-25 years’ experience, the increase was between 8-10 percent. After 25 years’ experience, the salary difference was statistically insignificant.

 

OTHER KEY SURVEY FINDINGS INCLUDE:

  • The highest paying job in the nursing sector is Nurse Anesthetist at $150,000.
  • Midwife and Nurse Practitioner are second and third both earning an average of $115,000.
  • Nurses working in schools represented the lowest earners at $60,000.
  • Nursing remains a female-dominated profession; male nurses, who represent only 13 % of the nurses within the United States, regardless of age and level of education, earned about 13 % more than their female peers.
  • 90 % of survey respondents who work in multiple states hold more than one license
  • Nurses working in a not-for-profit facility made an average of $5,000 a year more than nurses working in for-profit hospitals
