Neurology Nurse FAQs

What does a neurology nurse do?

  • Assisting with post-operative recovery

  • Providing wound or surgical site care

  • Performing detailed serial physical assessments and neurological exams

  • Administering medications and tests

  • Monitoring neurological function

  • Assisting with physical rehabilitation, mobility, and activities of daily living

  • Collaborating with healthcare teams on medical or pharmacological interventions

  • Assisting physicians with procedures

  • Evaluating patients’ responses to treatment

Neurology nurse salary

In December 2020, PayScale reported the average annual salary for staff neurology nurses was $70,065, or about $1,347 weekly and $33.68 hourly. During this same period, neurology nursing jobs on NurseFly paid a gross average weekly salary of $1,697. This salary may include untaxed compensations, such as meal per diems and housing allowances for neurology nurses who claim a permanent tax-home.

Where do neurology nurses work?

Neuroscience nursing is a broad specialty with several employment opportunities in inpatient and outpatient settings. Many neuro nurses are part of the neurology department at hospitals, but they may also work in the stroke unit or intensive care. They can work for outpatient clinics, rehabilitation facilities, long-term care facilities, and home care agencies. Experienced neurology nurses also may find employment within neuroscience specialists’ offices and travel nurse staffing agencies.

What skills make a good neurology nurse?

A good neurology nurse has a comprehensive understanding of nervous system anatomy and physiology, and vast knowledge of neurological conditions and diseases. Patients struggling with neurological issues can behave unpredictably and healing and rehabilitation can take time, so neuro nurses must have keen assessment and monitoring skills combined with lots of patience and sensitivity. They’re compassionate communicators with enormous empathy to help patients with long-term, potentially life-long, disabilities learn how to cope with their situations. Strong interpersonal skills, stamina, and being detail-oriented are also top traits needed to succeed in neurological nursing.

How to become a Neurology Travel Nurse

The first step towards a career as a neurology travel nurse is becoming a registered nurse. This requires earning an Associate Degree in Nursing or a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, passing the NCLEX-RN, and fulfilling any other state licensing requirements. RNs typically need Basic Life Support certification and neurology positions may require Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support certification.

Although not usually required, it’s a good career move to earn Certified Neuroscience Registered Nurse credentialing from the American Board of Neuroscience Nursing. Most travel neurology nurse positions require two or more years of recent neurology experience.
