California Union Salary Ranking Questions...

  1. 0
    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?

    You will likely go in as a II wherever you start. To get to III and IV you participate in the clinical ladder. Pretty much everybody pays well in the area and you can anticipate to make $55-60/hr as a full time with your experience.

    Most of the contracts can only be accessed from inside the facility website. CNA is the major union payer here and CRONA is the Stanford Union. UCSF Pay scales can be found online.

    It's difficult to get a job here. Most people take travel assignments or work local agency per Diem and it's easier to get inside a facility that way.

    Almost must consider the difficulty of transferring your license to California if you are coming from out of state.

    It's not really difficult. You just have to fill the papers out and then wait for them.

    Unfortunately, that's not true. Many folks have been rejected because California did not approve of their curriculum. Search this board and it will become evident that you don't just fill out papers and get handed a license automatically!
