Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Infection Control Practitioners do not generally earn higher salaries from more experience in the field—in most many but not all cases, experience is not a driving force behind pay increase. New salaries start at $62K and reach $69,594 in five to 10 years. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $77K. Wages continue to grow, though somewhat marginally, for Infection Control Practitioners after 20 years in the field, and salaries border $80K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 19 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, 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.
