I hate to be blunt about this but I find that all the advanced practice nursing professions have a more clear cut salary expectation. However, CNS' salaries always seem to be a mystery. Would it be possible if people could share what salaries a new graduate from a CNS program can expect? It would be most helpful for me in the Chicago/Milwaukee region.
The reason I like the CNS role instead of a NP, CRNA is the possibility of future advancement but salary is a unknown for me.
