CNS Salary advice

  1. Hi - I was curious if anyone who worked in a hospital staff professional development role could share their salary range, please? I have done some research - but have found a very wide range. Thanks!

    I've been a CNS for a little over 2 years and am salary, but make $40.15 an hour. I think I was at 37 or 38 when I started. This is in Virginia.
