Some of the highest-paying jobs for women are in healthcare.

There’s a lot to celebrate on International Women’s Day, including the fields where women not only make up a high percentage of the workforce but where they earn competitive pay doing it.

PayScale recently looked at occupations with the highest median pay for women with five to eight years of experience. To highlight jobs in which women frequently work, it included only those with at least 40% of workers who identify as women.

A number of well-paying healthcare occupations feature high concentrations of women. More than 90% of nurse practitioners and almost half of general physicians are women, for example.
