T.’s Answer

A background in biology is amazing to have as a speech language pathologist. Are you interested in working a cancer center? a nursing home? a school? The pay of a speech language pathologist differs based on setting. A pay of a speech language pathologist further differs based on their status: contract, travel, per diem, full time, temporary to permanent. There is not a magic number that you can nor should depend on. Depending on funding of a facility, you can have two hospitals within the same district actually have different pay scales. You may want to use the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics average as a starting point and add as needed during your interview negotiations to be comfortable with your housing.

Salary depends on location and setting. Skilled nursing facilities pay more than most acute care positions and definitely than schools.
