I'm moving to Northern Cali (the Santa Clara area) and trying to figure out what my salary might look like. I have found a few older Kaiser Permanente scales online and they are broken into tiers (RNI, RNII, RNIII, etc) and then various steps. I assume the steps are years of experience, but how do you figure out which tier you're on? I'm a BSN, CCRN with 8 years of experience. Also, are the current union contracts online?
