US IHN – Advanced Practice Clinicians and Nurses image

Mercer’s recent analysis of the healthcare labor market in the US found that the supply of healthcare workers is projected to fall short of demand by 2025. [1]

Occupations such as advanced practice clinicians and nurses are sure to be among this projected gap, so it’s vital that your organization has a competitive, future-oriented compensation strategy in place for these positions.

The IHN: Advanced Practice Clinicians and Nursing survey allows you to benchmark your competitive compensation position using data collected from more than 1,700 organizations. The survey includes data on a number of key metrics, such as:

  • Base pay
  • Short- and long-term incentives
  • Shift differentials
  • Per diem
  • Total compensation
Is your organization ready to compete amid the growing demand for healthcare workers?
