That is a very good question and one that ASET tries to answer by distributing a national salary survey for technologists every three years. Our last salary survey was published in 2011 and we are currently collecting data for our 2014 salary survey. Please sign up for the survey soon! We have a December 15th deadline for this survey.
There are many reasons why it is important for us to know what the range of salaries is in this field.
· It helps us advocate to employers to increase wages to meet current rates nation-wide
· It helps us recruit prospective students to the field when they can see what kind of earning they can anticipate
· It helps us demonstrate to Deans who may consider opening a new NDT program that the salary for neurodiagnostic technologists is competitive with other allied health professions
· It helps you to know what the average salary is for various specialties, so that you may plan for your own career path and anticipate an increase in your income in the future
We currently do not have sufficient responses to the salary survey to provide a statistically accurate representation of what technologists are making with respect to such demographics as years of experience, credentials obtained and regional differences in income.
So please be proactive and complete the salary survey on our website. You do not have to be a member to participate. We are striving to cover a wide range of job descriptions and levels of experience so we would like to hear from you whether you are on-the-job trained and working in a rural hospital, or if you are in a specialized role in a major medical center. We can advocate better for those working in the field if we have up-to-date information.
It does take a bit of time to complete the survey, and we greatly appreciate the time and effort you put into this endeavor. Please make sure you do not skip section one, which provides us with basic information on which we build the rest of the statistics.
