Springboard's Cath/EP/IR Wage Survey

As an industry-leading cardiovascular care partner for staffing and education, Springboard takes great pride in conducting and releasing the results of its national Wage Survey every other year. The results of the survey show how compensation differs across regions and specialties, and reveals insights related to hours, education and benefits.

An industry snapshot

At Springboard, we care about the health and progress of the cardiovascular care industry. It’s why we take the time to gather information we believe will be helpful to nurses, techs, managers and facilities.

Our 2020 Wage Survey gathered responses from more than 1,800 participants, giving us a good look at wages and hours, and how education and region impact compensation. This year’s survey also touched on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in furloughs, a decline in hours and a decrease in wages. See how your experience compares to those who participated.

Be in the know

The West continues to lead the way when it comes to wages, and travelers continue to outpace permanent nurses and techs when it comes to compensation by a significant margin. The South was most heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and those who said they were “satisfied” with their wages were generally the highest paid.
