Pay by Experience Level for Nurse Midwife

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Nurse Midwifes, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $76K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $85K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $98K. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $102K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
