Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Denver Registered Nurses, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. Salaries start at $55K, which grows to $62K after five to 10 years. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $69K. Once they've gotten two decades of experience under their belts, Registered Nurses in Denver encounter slower salary growth; at this point, they earn $77K annually. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 17 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 12 percent. A majority of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
