Pediatric Nurse Annual Salary Maine - ME
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor groups pediatric nurse practitioners among registered nurses when categorizing nursing salaries. Under this categorization, it would seem that the reported pediatric nurse salary in Maine would be a bit lower than it actually is. Using these calculations, the BLS reports that a pediatric nurse practitioner in Maine earns approximately $65,420. Because PNPs have much more education and specialized training than RNs, however, one would expect that a pediatric nurse practitioner would make a much higher salary than a RN.
Another measure of PNP salaries can be found on the website indeed.com. This site lists the average PNP yearly salary at $85,000, which seems more plausible than the BLS’s figure. The pediatric nurse practitioner salary reported by indeed.com is almost identical to a quoted PNP salary in a job opportunity listed on the site.
Smith and Associates Health Care Placements currently has a job availability listed for a PNP interested in work in a rural regional medical center in Maine with a salary range from $85,000 to $100,000 per year, based on experience. Jobs for PNPs can be found across the state of Maine in cities including Lewiston, Portland, Bangor, Sanford and West Scarborough and in rural outlying areas of the state as well.
