SALARY SURVEYS: How much do nurse managers earn?

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.
