Average Base Salary for Chief Nursing Information Officer as High as $250k

The average base salary for a typical chief nursing information officer is about $200,000 to $250,000, up from about $175,000 a year ago, according to Witt-Kieffer survey cited in an InformationWeek report.

However, there is variance on salary figures for CNIOs, which is still a relatively new hospital position, as government-owned health systems tend to pay less, according to the report.

Salaries also depended on the skills of a CNIO. Roughly 85 percent of survey respondents said a background in nursing informatics was pertinent, while only 20 percent said finance skills were necessary.
