Iowa Healthcare Informatics Salary - IA

The average Iowa nursing informatics salary is $90,000 per year. However, most entry-level professionals will begin by earning roughly $74,000 per year. In addition, there is somewhat of a variance for professionals with many years of experience in nursing informatics. In fact, roughly 59% of professionals with 10 years of experience or more earn significantly more than $75,000 per year, so you can see where experience most definitely has its benefits.

Another aspect of salary variance is in what type of organization that you work as a nursing informaticist. Approximately 58% of professionals that work for vendor organizations will make more than $75,000 each year. In contrast, only 20% of professionals working for a hospital will earn more than that annually. So, your income is not only dependent upon your level of experience, but also in what type of facility you choose to work. Be sure to keep that in mind after graduation and as you begin your job search.
