Nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system. During the COVID-19 pandemic they have been called heroes, essential workers, and frontline workers. But nurses often express feeling underappreciated and overworked. They deserve more, and Incredible Health is constantly focused on providing exactly that.
Today, we’re announcing a first-of-its-kind salary estimator, exclusively for US nurses, and 100% free. The Incredible Health Nurse Salary Estimator provides nurses with detailed salary ranges for jobs in specific geographies, so they can make more informed decisions about their careers. The Nurse Salary Estimator is available in Incredible Health’s iOS, Android, and web apps, and aims to empower every nurse to make the best career decisions.
The data behind the estimator includes salary information from nurses who have been hired in permanent positions using Incredible Health’s marketplace, job offer data that we receive from our national network of health systems and hospital employers, and supplemental data we have obtained from third parties. It includes registered nurse salary and nurse practitioner salary information.
Typically, detailed salary reports are available exclusively to employers, not nurses. These reports often cost tens of thousands of dollars, are hard to read and are in difficult to access PDF formats. In states such as New York and California, salary data can be buried in confidential union agreements. Salary information is also closely held by employer compensation committees. With the Incredible Health Nurse Salary Estimator, a nurse can simply enter their location and their nursing level, to instantly view an accurate salary range that’s informed by the latest data from real jobs.
Empowering Nurses with accurate nurse salary data
Over 80% of nurses nationally report being uncertain about whether they are sufficiently compensated or not. Over one-third of nurses hired through Incredible Health are relocating from a different state, and are even less informed of the average nurse salary in the new location. “How much do nurses make?” is a common question our nurse talent advocates receive on a daily basis. This lack of detailed, easily accessible, and trusted nurse salary information puts nurses at a disadvantage as it makes it more challenging when making decisions about whether to leave a job or stay, when negotiating a promotion or compensation for a new job, and when evaluating job offers.
When nurses are relocating to higher cost-of-living states such as California, they report challenges in evaluating if the compensation is sufficient for their families and lifestyles. In addition, over 90% of nurses are women, and 20% identify as minorities — these two cohorts are historically at a structural disadvantage in compensation compared to other demographics. By arming nurses with the Nurse Salary Estimator, nurses can be more empowered to make more informed career decisions.
I’m using Incredible Health and within two days of uploading my resume, I received four job offers! Within one week I interviewed and received interest for employment. Two weeks later I landed an incredible job at one of the most prestigious medical centers in the nation. I was relocating and the Nurse Salary Estimator helped me determine what salary to expect too. I doubled my pay, received a sweet sign-on bonus and got $5000 relocation assistance! Best decision I’ve ever made was to use Incredible Health!”DC Perrin, RN
