In responding to the 2015 Same-Day Surgery Salary Survey, more than one-third (38.46%) of respondents saw pay increases of 1% to 3%.
More than half (53.85%) saw no change to their salary. (See “In the past year, how has your salary changed?” graphic in this issue.)
About 62% of respondents make $100,000 or more. (See “What is your salary level” graphic.) One reason for the salary level might be the number of years that most respondents have worked in healthcare. More than 85% of respondents have worked in healthcare for 25 years or more. (See “How long have you worked in healthcare” graphic in this issue.) While half (50%) of respondents report having a BSN degree, more than 28% report having an MSN or other master’s degree. (See “What is your highest academic degree?” graphic.)
More than one in five (21.43%) saw an increase in staffing last year.
The location of respondents was diverse, with the numbers evenly divided among the following:
A slightly lower percentage responded from rural areas (14.29%). (See the graphic enclosed in this issue, “Where is your facility located?” )
