BSN to DNP Salaries

Health care employers are recognizing the unique contributions that nurses with advanced degrees can make in the practice arena. As a result, the demand for nurses with a doctorate in nursing practice (DNP) is accelerating.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2014, registered nurses earned an average annual salary of $69,790, or $33.55 an hour. While nurses with BSNs typically see steady pay raises, nurses can earn much more if they pursue a DNP.

BSN to DNP: Salary Depends on Position

The American Association of Colleges in Nursing (AACN) said the DNP should replace the MSN as the gold standard to become a nurse practitioner (NP) by 2015. How much a nurse who goes from a BSN to a DNP will earn depends on the specific career path. Here are some careers and their salaries for DNPs in 2015, according to payscale.com:

  • Nursing Manager: $69,043 - $128,256
  • Family Nurse Practitioner: $62,384 - $102,936
  • Nursing Director: $66,551 - $153.867

Additionally, NPs who practice in urban settings earn more than those who don't.

To earn a DNP, nurses build on traditional master's programs. They study evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and systems leadership, among other key areas.
