Attention members! Did you know you can help the Society help other members?
You may have noticed an increase in emails recently. That is because the Society is working on putting together the WOC Nursing Salary and Productivity Survey.
The information contained for the report will represent complete, accurate and up-to-date compensation and productivity data on the WOC nursing industry. The report is designed to allow a user to easily compare their compensation and productivity levels with their peers.
The data have been aggregated in the following groupings so users can compare their own data to the results of similar respondents. These aggregations include:
- All Respondents
- By Education Level
- By Geographical Area
- By Years of Nursing Experience
- By Primary Practice Setting
- By WOCNCB® Certified/Not Certified
- By Licensed/Not Licensed Advance Practice Nurse
- By Prescriptive Authority/No Prescriptive Authority
- By Management Responsibility/No Management Responsibilities
This is where you come in!
Be sure to open those emails and take the survey to help give fellow WOCN® members the most accurate information.
