As an RN working in a staff development position in a hospital ... the salarly range varies widely depending upon your educational level, years of experience in staff development, and the general salary ranges of your area based on your cost of living.
For RN's with a Master's Degree -- in average-size hospitals in towns with an average cost of living -- the range is in the $50,000 - $80,000 range. In larger cities with higher costs of living, some nurses with lots of experience make $100,000 or even $120,000. In areas where the salary range is lower, you would expect to see a $40,000 - $60,000 range.
Also, if you don't have a Master's Degree, the range might be lower. My hospital (mid-sized city, average cost of living for the USA) has 2 different salary position titles -- with different salary ranges -- for those with MSN's and those without.
