In celebration of National Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week, we’re excited to release our very first batch of data on relief tech rates!
Earlier in the year, we surveyed all our veterinarian and technician members. We listed a number of salary ranges and then asked: Which range best represents the average going hourly rate in the state(s) you practice? (Note: We specifically did not ask members what they charge themselves. We know people can be shy about disclosing that info, so we focused on their understanding of typical rates.)
The first batch of nurse/technician results is below. The survey was sent to over 100 members and shared in relief veterinary social media groups; 115 techs weighed in on this question.
Please note: We allow participants to respond for multiple states, as they may work in multiple states. Based on the number of responses per state, it is clear that many of the 115 techs answered for more than one state.
Are the results for your state what you expected? How does your state compare to the others? Send your thoughts and comments to [email protected]!
