2017 Nursing Salary Survey

  1. 14

    As nurses, we know how valuable we are to the healthcare system as a whole. We also know that we are respected by the public. Nurses have consistently ranked in the top position of the Gallup poll with Americans rating nurses as having the highest honesty and ethical standards. How do our salaries compare with the overall respect and importance placed on our jobs?

    2017 Nursing Salary Survey

    In January 2015, members of allnurses and the larger nursing community holding an active nursing license were invited to participate in the first allnurses online nursing salary survey. Nurses turned out in droves resulting in more than 18,800 participants. The results, displayed in several interactive images, provided invaluable information about current salaries across the U.S. and Canada, allowing nurses to see how their salaries stack up.

    Now it is time for the 2017 allnurses Nursing Salary Survey and we hope you will participate. The more questions you answer, the more complete our data will be. This survey takes about 5 minutes or less to complete. We listened to your suggestions and added a few more questions to help provide even more insight into the question of “How much do nurses make?” We will also try to shed more light on last year’s findings that males make more than females. Last year the number of ADN and BSN nurses were a virtual tie. Will that change this year? What states pay the highest salaries?

    ↪ Start Salary Survey

    A great big THANK YOU to Drexel University for sponsoring the 2017 Nursing Salary Survey.

    If you hold an active nursing license and live/work in the United States, U.S. Territories or the Canadian Provinces, we would like you to participate in this year’s nursing salary survey. Please answer the questions as they relate to your primary nursing job. If you have more than one nursing job, you may fill out an additional survey. Answer as many questions as possible.

    The survey tool that we use will allow us to analyze and report the results to you.

    All participants who provide their email will be entered to win a $100 gift card.

    One comment: question #26 is required, but says "If you work FULL-TIME...". I don't, so why is it a required question? Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the results!

    If you are wondering on how your nursing salary compares with the average salaries in your state, take a look at last year's results in What States Pay the Highest and Lowest Nursing Salaries.

    This year we will be able to help you narrow salaries down by location, degree and specialty. This will be helpful for those considering moving.

    At the bottom of the page?
    I clicked it and it looks like it didn't specifically share the survey (which was what I wanted to share), but shared allnurses Rock general page.
    I don't see that it was shared (yet).
    Will investigate.

    Would be helpful to include a Nurse Residency position description for new graduate nurses.

    It says if you work a second job to take a second survey, but it doesn't let you in twice.
