Report on Nursing Faculty Salaries in Colleges and Universities, 1981-1982. Data Bank Series 82, No. 1.
Murphy, Marion I.
Data on 1981-82 salaries of full-time nursing faculty employed in baccalaureate and graduate programs who hold membership in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) are presented. Salaries are presented for 256 AACN member schools, which covers 7,547 full-time nurse faculty positions as of fall 1981-1982. Data are presented on both an academic year and a calendar year basis. Information is presented on the average salaries of participating schools in 1980-1981 and 1981-1982 by academic rank and doctoral or nondoctoral preparation. To control for the problem of changes in participation, salary information is presented on a matched group of 220 institutions that participated in both years. In addition to average salaries, percentile ranks (25th, 50th, and 75th) are included. Separate tables are presented to show data by type of school (public, secular private, and religious private); geographic regions (North Atlantic, Midwest, South, and West); schools with similar program type and size; and schools with the same organizational structure and type of parent institution. All tables represent compilations of individual faculty salaries. Identification of salaries by percentiles will enable faculty members to locate (approximately) how their salaries compare with others of comparable background, institution, region, and other criteria. It was found that salaries of professors and associate professors in schools enrolling students in doctoral programs were higher than the other categories. Professors in these schools had a 10 percent increase in salary over 1980-1981 as compared to a 7.5 increase the previous year. A questionnaire and list of participating schools by region and type of institution are appended. (SW)
