Results of a compensation survey conducted by the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) based on 2012 data are summarized in this article. A total of over 4,500 individuals responded. Most of the respondents (67 percent) worked in acute care hospitals. Here are some of the findings:
- Nurses with the title “director” or “manager” tend to earn $80,000 to $160,000
- Nearly two-thirds of chief nursing officers (nonsystem) earn between $100,000 to $200,000
- Nearly three-quarters of chief nursing officers (system) earn more than $200,000
Job satisfaction was also a focus of this survey. About two-thirds of nurse managers reported being very satisfied with their work.
