Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Licensed Practical Nurses with Hospice skills, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. After five to 10 years, starting salaries jump from $38K to $41K. After 10 to 20 years, salary hovers around $42K. Though salary increases are not as strong, pay continues to grow slightly for Licensed Practical Nurses with Hospice skills after two decades on the job, and average earnings come to $44K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 21 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 6 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 16 percent. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work—of those who took the survey, more than half land within this radius.
