2017 Nursing Salary Survey
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?
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?

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.

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).
