    According to the ANPD Salary Survey from 2017, NPD practitioners in a unit based nonsupervisory role resulted in the following:

    Average annual earnings including wages, bonuses and overtime:

    $40K-50K - 1.9%
    $50-60K - 6.2%
    $60-70K - 10.9%
    $70-80K - 15.8%
    $80-90K - 22.7%
    $90-125K - 36.1%
    $125-150K - 3.9%
    Over $150K - 1.3%

    Obviously your location, degree level, institution and many other factors will figure into what would be average for your area.

    I started out as hourly and was converted to salaried when my position changed a bit to add injury prevention in addition to trauma education. I did negotiate a raise based on what I had been paid in OT the previous year. I do miss my hourly days!

    If you were promoted from a staff position to the professional/clinical educator position in your department, did you experience a different relationship with your coworkers, (us verses them) or were you able to maintain the same level of comradery with your coworkers. Any advise on this aspect of the transition would be welcomed.
