Nurse practitioners (NPs) are physicians who specialize in providing care for patients with common, chronic health problems. NPs can work in either private or public settings and may work for a physician, a hospital, or another healthcare organization. In addition to receiving additional training to become an NPI, physicians must also meet certain criteria to practice as an NPI. The average salary for an NPI varies by location and specialty. For example, nurse practitioners working in the emergency room earn more than those who work as an office-based NP; while similarly experienced registered nurse (RN) nurses earn more than nurse aides who also have some education and experience working with patients. According to the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the national average salary for an RN who has completed one year of postgraduate training is approximately $76,600 per year. However this figure does not include any benefits or bonuses that might be offered by an employer.
Registered Nurse Salary
Registered nurses (RNs) are the most common type of professional nurse. This is not surprising, since RNs make up the most common workforce in the United States, with nearly 7 million people employed in this field as of 2016. RNs work in a wide variety of settings and may specialize in a specific area of health care, such as pediatrics or geriatrics. Because RNs work in a wide variety of settings, their salaries vary by location and by experience and education level. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the median annual salary for RNs was $68,660 in May 2017. However, salaries vary widely depending on factors like location, employer, experience and education level.
Certified Registered Nurse Midwife Salary
Midwives are licensed nurses who specialize in delivering babies. Qualified nurses who have a certain number of years of experience can earn a certification in midwifery. Most midwives work in private practice as sole practitioners or in health clinics or hospitals. Others work for midwifery care associations or for the government or military. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for nurses in the U.S. as of May 2017 was $66,820. However, salaries vary widely depending on factors like location and experience.
BSN or Master’s in Nursing Salary
Bachelor of Nursing (BN) graduates can often find jobs as nurse assistants and take care of basic patient needs and provide some medical care. BN graduates can also get positions as nursing assistants in hospitals or nursing programs. Those with an MS in nursing can work as nurse managers and as directors of nursing, or work as nurses in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and government agencies. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary for RNs was $76,600 as of May 2017. The median annual salary, which is the middle salary number, was $68,660.
Emergency Room RN Salary
Emergency room nurses, also known as critical care nurses, are the nurses who care for patients who have life-threatening illnesses and injuries, or those who require immediate, intensive care. While most ER nurses work full-time in a hospital or as part-time employees in an ER, some work as consultants who travel to patients’ homes when they are too sick to be transported to the hospital. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary for RNs was $76,600 as of May 2017. The median annual salary, which is the middle salary number, was $68,660.
Nursing Specialty Salary
Different nursing specialties have different average salaries. For example, the average salary for registered nurse ancillary services was $98,000 in 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The average salary for a nurse practitioner in chronic care was $109,000 as of May 2017, according to the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
Associate Degree in Nursing or Diploma in Nursing Salary
Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) have to pass a state-examined exam to become licensed. LPNs often work in homes as caretakers and in hospitals and health care centers as patient companions, health aides, or attendants. Those who have completed an associate degree, or diploma, in nursing often have more opportunities for advancement, higher salaries, and more educational benefits than LPNs who have not completed a degree program. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average salary for RNs was $76,600 as of May 2017.
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) or PhD in Nursing Salary
Some nurses choose to go the PhD route in order to become a registered nurse ancillary professional (RN-AP). RN-APs are advanced practice nurses who have completed a doctorate degree in nursing and have passed an exam to become certified. They are licensed by state boards of nursing and hold advanced degrees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for RNs was $76,600 as of May 2017. The median annual salary, which is the middle salary number, was $68,660.
