We want to make life easier for all primary health care nurses by helping you work to the best of your capacity. A big part of that is ensuring that your salary and conditions recognise and properly value your contribution to patient care and to your workplace.
To make this easier our team has developed this handy online tool to display the average rate of pay for nurses where you live. This data came from the 2021 APNA Workforce Survey.
Of course this is just an indication of how much nurses around you are earning, and should be used as a reference point. Your own salary expectation would depend on other circumstances including your experience, qualifications, skills, scope of practice, confidence and much more.
Unlike hospital nurses, primary health care nurses don’t have an accurate Nurses Award to work out a deserving pay (click here to find out more about the Nurse's Award). This is why we encourage you to start advocating for yourself and believe you can receive a pay raise through negotiating with your employers.
Does that idea make you uncomfortable? We know negotiating for pay raise can scary, which is why we have compiled the Negotiating a Pay Raise Guide to equip you (click here to download the Negotiating Guide for Primary health Care Nurses).
So let’s begin… let's punch in your details and have a look at the average pay for nurses with your qualification in your area.
