Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Nursing Home Directors, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. New salaries start at $67K and reach $77K in five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $78K. Wages do not stop growing after 20 years on the job but they do accelerate at a slower rate, and Nursing Home Directors tend to earn $81K at this point in time. In this field, age distribution is widespread: 26 percent of those surveyed report the most experience (more than two decades), and 39 percent have the least experience (one to nine years). 32 percent of respondents fall in the middle, with 10-20 years of experience.
