Great question. Yes, my organization does recognize DNPs as educators and leaders in the clinical setting. However, I’m unsure, if someone were to obtain their DNP license, in a leadership role, if they would receive additional compensation within that same position. I would assume the answer is yes, but that would be naïve. Theoretically, it makes sense– that the higher the degree, the more certifications, the better the job opportunity and salary. Nevertheless, salary range has many factors, not limited to only level of education; such as: experience, level of seniority, specialty, location, etc. But, it’s not all about the money- right?
