Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Registered Nurses with Geriatrics skills with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $51K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $57K. Registered Nurses with Geriatrics skills who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $60K. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $61K. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; a majority of respondents fit between this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up slightly less than one-fifth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise roughly a tenth, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining close to one-eighth.
