Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. At career start (within the first five years), average income sits near $77K, and the average for folks who have worked for five to 10 years is only slightly higher at $79K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Nurse Midwifes make a median salary of $91K. As Nurse Midwifes reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $100K.
