The great recession hasn’t impacted everyone negatively. While the salaries and compensation for nurses has remained stagnant, the salaries for nursing home administrators have climbed to its highest rate in four years.
According to a study by the Nursing Home Salary and Benefits Report from Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Service, the average salary of a nursing home administrator rose by an average of 4.8% in 2009. The national average now hovers around $89,000 for administrators of nursing homes of all sizes, including not-for-profit facilities.
The study took samples from more than 10,000 nursing homes across the United States.
