Salary and Compensation Study for Nurse Leaders 2016
The AONE Salary and Compensation Study for Nurse Leaders | 2016 edition featured wide participation from nurse leaders. The average responding nurse leader works full time (35+ hours per week) in an acute-care hospital. He/she holds an executive or management title such as director, manager or chief nursing officer; has been in nursing leadership for at least six years; is between the ages of 45 and 64; holds a master’s degree; and earns between $90,000 and $149,999 annually. However, this average description is meant only to highlight the most common, high-level responses in the survey. Further analysis reveals many different trends based on factors such as title, span of control (the number of departments and employees who ultimately report to a single position) and geographic region. These trends are illustrated in the following report.
