Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Infection Control Practitioners, experience in the field does not tend to play a major role in salary decisions; in general, pay does not go up drastically with more experience, and earnings grow incrementally instead. At career start, salaries are typically $62K, which grows to $69,594 after five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $77K. As Infection Control Practitioners approach two decades on the job, pay accelerates at a slower pace, and typical earnings come to $80K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up around one in five of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 16 percent. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience—of those surveyed, a majority land within this range.
