Once again, for the 17th consecutive year, Nursing has retained the top spot in the Gallup Poll for honesty and ethics. While it is wonderful that the nursing profession has been recognized for this honor by the public, are nurses getting paid what they should? The interactive results of this survey will allow you to see how your salary stacks up against other nurses with similar experience and level of education. You are reading page 2 of 2019 Nursing Salary Survey. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I was hoping for eye color to be part of the survey. I am convinced that there is a wage gap between brown eyed and blue eyed nurses.

This survey has some problems with it - it asks "When do you plan to leave the nursing workforce" - I don't. The only option for me is 16+ years but that's not really answering the question - I'm hoping to stay in the workforce. It then asks why I'm planning on leaving - again, I'm not. I selected retirement - but I'm not planning on retiring for many, many years. Also, there were many questions that didn't have appropriate options for those working in ambulatory care or NPs. It says what is my job title - and I had to select "Other." I would imagine that outpatient/ambulatory primary care clinic NPs and RNs would have a hard to time answering some questions on this survey.

Thank you for your input.

Everyone will eventually leave nursing.  If you have no plans in the near future, then 16+ years is the right choice.  And if you plan on staying in nursing until you retire, then selecting retirement is the right choice.

Ambulatory Care is a choice for Primary Nursing Specialty. (Question #5)

Question #15 is aimed at getting data on nurse-patient ratios in clinical areas in the hospital that are the focus of current safe staffing legislation before the state and national house and senate committees.  We asked this same question last year and will use the responses from this year's survey to see if any progress has been made in moving toward safer staffing.

Not every question will apply to everyone who takes the survey.  Therefore, not every question requires an answer. An asterisk has been placed beside those questions requiring a response.

I hope this clarifies things for you and others.

Although I have a base "hourly" pay, I also get Baylor pay and I wasn't sure if I should have included the extra pay into the "hourly" rate. Does that make sense?

For example, if my base pay is $20/hour for 24 hours (two-12 hour shifts) worked per week, but I get an extra 12 hours of Baylor pay, that works out to $30/hour.  I answered with my base hourly rate.  I hope this was okay?

Like others, I am happy to be able to finally call myself an RN and am honored to be able to answer this survey.  Yay!

Congratulations, new nurse.  Thanks for participating.  The way you answered it is fine.

Updated my account information and I was able to complete the survey

I do find when it comes to salary it really does depend on where you live. Some of the highest paid are out in California, New York, D.C. and Hawaii but the cost of living is extremely high. Compared to those of us who live down South and Midwest

In addition, my survey definitely is reflection of how I feel stagnant in my career because I have outgrown Med/Surg and unhappy in my current position. I love being a nurse but I don't want to spend another year on a Med/Surg unit
