This document presents data on salaries of deans in U.S. undergraduate and graduate nursing programs in 17 tables. Data are based on a 1998 survey of 541 public and private universities and four-year colleges. Introductory information includes definitions of terms used in the survey, Carnegie classification definitions, a description of the survey methodology, and a summary of characteristics of participating institutions. The report presents salary percentiles on a calendar year basis by numerous respondent characteristics including title, highest earned degree, academic rank, tenure status, and years in current deanship. Highlights of the data identified include: (1) the mean calendar year salaries for 1998-1999 were $89,903 for deans (N=415) of schools belonging to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, $63,263 for non-member deans (n=62), a 5.3 increase for member deans and a 4.1 percent increase for nonmember deans above the 1997-1998 mean salaries; and (2) the mean and median number of years in the current deanship was 7.0 and 6.0 years, respectively, with 367 deans (73.5 percent) in their first deanship and 132 (26.5 percent) reporting previous deanships.
