Hi, I am interviewing for a perinatal CNS position and am wondering what salary range I should expect. Thanks!

I'm an adult and pads CNS and function as an APN so my salary is in line with mid-level providers.
Much will depend on where you live, what type of facility?

I live in Arizona. I start my masters in January to become a CNS. Down the road, I would love to work in a hospital on a CVICU or Telemetry unit!
