MSN and FNP Salaries in Montana

According to data published in May 2018 by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a Nurse Practitioner in Montana was $103,510. This is significantly higher than the average RN salary of $67,450.

The workforce outlook for master’s educated nurses in Montana, particularly NPs, is excellent. According to a 2016 report from the Montana Department of Labor and Industry, the labor market for nurses is tighter in Montana than in other states (ie, it is harder for employers to find qualified nurses to fill vacancies due to the low number of nurses in the state).

The Department noted that employers can increase their likelihood of filling vacancies by making compensation more competitive. According to a survey conducted by the Department, the three most well-compensated positions for master’s educated RNs in the state were APRNs, nurse faculty, and staff nurse positions.
