Factors that may affect the salaries of healthcare workers
Although the information on here is accurate, there are many factors that may affect how much you will actually earn in your profession.
Geographical location: The location of where you end up working will greatly affect your salary. Those working in large metropolitan areas tend to earn much higher salary than those working in rural or less populated areas. This is largely due to the fact that there are more clients in largely populated areas than in less populated areas. This also means that those working large cities and towns work longer hours than those in rural settings.
Type of establishment: The type of establishment you find yourself working in can also have a significant effect on how much you earn. There are differences in salaries among those working in large hospitals, those running their own private practices, those working in academia, those working in industry and manufacturing and those working in private doctors offices.
Years of experience: The number of years of experience can also influence how much money you make. Generally speaking, the more experienced you are, the higher your salary.
Training and education: The level of education attained also has an effect on salary. Generally, the higher your level of education, the higher salary you get paid.
