Which nurses’ aides are earning more than the average?
- by admin
Nursing assistants have been in demand since the mid-1980s, with some workers earning more in their careers than the median pay of an associate in the US.
And it seems that trend will continue.
The median annual salary of an assistant in nursing in the United States was $55,000 last year, according to data compiled by the National Nurses United union, and an average of $71,000.
That is a huge jump from the median annual pay for an associate nursing assistant in 2015 of $49,000, according the National Institute of Health.
The biggest pay jump is seen among nursing assistants who were hired in 2012 or 2013.
In 2013, the median salary of a nurse assistant was $49.40 an hour, according a study by the Center for Labor Research and Education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Nursing assistant salaries have been on a steady rise for several years now, although the growth in salaries for the profession is not unprecedented.
Nurses earned an average annual salary for full-time employees of $70,000 in 2010, according for the National Center for Health Statistics.
This is up from an average salary of $51,000 for full time employees in 2010.
In 2019, the average annual salaries of nursing assistants were $56,000 and $69,000 respectively.
The average annual wage for nursing assistants was $56.50 per hour in 2016, according data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The annual pay of a nursing assistant is determined by three factors: the type of care provided, the level of training required, and the experience of the individual.
A full-service nursing assistant earns more than a nursing aide who is a part-time nurse, a full-fledged nurse or a certified nurse assistant, according of the American Nurses Association.
Full-time nurses earn more than part-timers, but the gap is narrowing.
The typical nurse’s salary was $71.30 an hour in 2017, according NNU.
The US Bureau, the National Association of Colleges and Employers and the US Department of Labor all classify nursing assistants as full- or part- time.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that about 80 percent of nurses are employed full- and part-timer in nursing homes.
For part–time nursing assistants, the rate is about 78 percent, according CNN.
NNUS president Donna Brown said in a statement: The nursing assistants in our profession are valued members of our communities and the American people.
We must continue to ensure that every person who comes into our care is able to do so with dignity and respect.
“The nurse is our friend, and we should support their ability to make that relationship as authentic and healthy as possible.”
The National Nursies United union said in 2016 that more than 80 percent, or more than 12.4 million people, were employed full time as nursing assistants.
The union also pointed to a study that found that there were more than 13 million full- time and part time nurses in nursing facilities.
The number of nursing staff in nursing home care is expected to double by 2030, according estimates from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
According to a recent study by The Washington Post, the number of US nursing home residents ages 65 and older in nursing institutions increased by 7 percent from 2012 to 2021.
According the report, the increase is largely driven by increases in the number who were older than 65.
According that study, the majority of nursing home population growth is expected from elderly nursing home patients in nursing, which has been a growing demographic in the past decade.
