Nurse Practitioner Salaries in New Jersey - NJ

Although the newer and as yet unpublished version of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is supposed to group nurse practitioners separately from registered nurses for salary and data gathering purposes, the current version groups NPs with RNs. Therefore, according to the BLS, the average nurse practitioner salary in New Jersey is the same as the average registered nurse salary in New Jersey: $74,990. However, it is more likely that NPs earn higher salaries than RNs, due to the advanced education and clinical training required for the position.

Indeed.com lists the average NP salary in New Jersey as $99,000. This figure seems a bit more reasonable than the BLS statistic for NPs. Certain cities in New Jersey may pay NPs more, or less, than this average salary. For example, the following salary data from indeed.com displays these differences:

  • Jersey City:  $120,000
  • Newark:  $120,000
  • Paterson:  $121,000
  • Elizabeth:  $120,000
  • Woodbridge:  $121,000
