Family Nurse Practitioner Salaries in Maryland - MD

Since family nurse practitioners must complete more years of education than that required by a registered nurse, it makes sense that they would earn a higher annual salary than the salary earned by a registered nurse. Salary figures provided by the Nurse Practitioner Association of Maryland found that the average family nurse practitioner salary in Maryland falls within the range of $86,000 to $95,000 annually. These figures differ quite a bit from salary statistics provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), who groups family nurse practitioners together with all registered nurses working in the state, advanced practice or not. BLS income figures for FNPs, which are the same as RNs, indicate an average annual pay of $76,330. The figures provided by the NPAM seem to be more accurate, as they were derived from a survey of 443 nurse practitioners working in Maryland in 2009.
