2013 West Salary Survey Results

Money matters. You may have become a nurse because you want to care for people, because you love science and critical thinking, but you are also a well-educated professional whose salary should reflect your level of expertise.

We could argue that what you do as a nurse is a lot more important than what a Hollywood director does, but it won't get you very far. Ours is a complicated society and economic structure where financial rewards are based more on how much more money you can generate than by what you are contributing to the health and well-being of the community. For this reason nurses will never earn what they are worth. But you should at least earn what is fair within your industry.

Understanding Surveys

Another complicated issue is surveys. When reviewing the numbers presented here, you have to understand the limitations of this or any survey. These findings are not definitive. They are a reflection of data from a group of nurses with some similar demographics.

If you are not making exactly the average salary listed here it could be some other circumstance is at play - years of experience, that you are in a densely populated area where salaries may be lower, or are in a more affluent area where salaries are higher.

If your salary is not a close match, think about other circumstances that could be making that difference before marching in and demanding a raise.
