Pediatric Nurse Salary

Pediatric Nurse Salary


Providing pediatric care is a special calling, one that most Pediatric RNs feel very strongly about. The average pediatric nurse salary is around $64,000 per year, which is on par with the national average for the nursing profession, but can even be higher depending on the state and whether you are a staff nurse or a travel nurse. Travel nurses earn up to 30% more than their staff counterparts. Basic skills needed to succeed as a pediatric nurse include great communication skills, patience, dedication to a high level of care, and excellent multitasking skills. Since 2002, trustaff has been helping Pediatric RNs find the jobs of their dreams. Fill out the form below to get started.

Pediatric Travel Nurse Education Needs

There is no universal education requirement for travel nurses, but most agencies will ask you to have 1-3 years of experience working directly in pediatrics and be licensed in your home state. Travel nurses are expected to hit the ground running when they arrive on assignment, sometimes with minimal orientation, so it's best to have established a strong working knowledge of pediatric care.

Travel Nurse Compensation Packages

Travel nurses already receive great pay, on average earning up to 30% more than a staff nurse. However, travelers also have the opportunity to earn great bonuses and even enjoy tax-free incentives. Travel nurses also have access to full employee benefits, depending on which agency they choose. From health insurance to 401k match and license reimbursement, don't forget to consider your other employee perks as part of your overall compensation package.
