36 statistics on nurse leader salary and bonuses

The American Organization of Nurse Executives has released the 2016 edition of its "Salary and Compensation Study for Nurse Leaders" report.

This year, 2,541 nurses completed all or part of the survey, reporting on data from the 2015 calendar year. Most of the respondents — 35 percent — were nurse directors; 21 percent were CNOs or chief nurse executives.

Here are 36 statistics on nurse leaders' salaries, based on the survey's findings.

Note: Not all of the response areas add up to 100 percent, as percentages were rounded to the nearest whole number and in some cases respondents were able to select more than one response.
