Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Across the entire workforce, experience and pay tend to be weakly linked—those with more experience do not necessarily bring in much higher salaries. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $67K; however, pay rises to approximately $77K after five to 10 years. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $78K. After 20 years of work in the field, Nursing Home Directors typically earn $81K and go on to enjoy (slight) increases in earnings. Age distribution in this workforce is quite spread out, with those with between one and nine years of experience accounting for 39 percent of the workforce, those with 10-20 making up 32 percent and those with more than two decades of experience rounding out the remaining 26 percent.
