Pediatric Nurse Salary in Delaware - DE

For purposes of salary categorization, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the United States Department of Labor groups the average yearly income of pediatric nurse practitioners among regular registered nurse salaries. In Delaware, according to these figures, the average pediatric nurse practitioner would make about $70,770 per year. However, grouping pediatric nurse practitioners together with other nursing salaries is misleading. Pediatric nurse practitioners are advanced practice RNs (APRNs) with many more years of training and certification than RNs. Therefore, pediatric nurse practitioners should expect higher salaries than what RNs earn.

Indeed.com lists the average pediatric nurse salary in Delaware as $94,000. This salary seems to be much more in line with expected pediatric nurse practitioner earnings.
