How do hospitals in San Diego handle their promotion structure????

  1. I'm curious for anyone that works at Scripps, Sharp, Kaiser, etc hospitals how often you are reviewed for raises? For example, if you start as a new grad at lets say 27-28/hr., how long until you are up for a raise and if your review is approved, how much pay increase is there? Is it a percentage, a dollar an hour or what? I would love your feedback. I am trying to figure this out in comparison with the raise structure of the VA, military hospitals in town which start you out at a lower salary but move you up several times within the first year versus a civilian hospital where you start much higher hourly???

    This is what ive heard about Kaiser, but who knows if it's true. I hear you get a raise every 6 months.

    Can only speak for my Scripps hospital, maybe only our floor although I assume it's hospital wide. This is only for floor nurses. We get a yearly cost of living increase in the first few months of the year, you get a raise with certain certifications and additional degrees (BSN, MSN). The review is yearly on your hire date, the amount depends on your score on your review, generally between 2% (not good review) to 4% (good). I have worked there 3 months shy of 2 years and my salary has been raised $4.50 per hour during that time.

    At Kaiser: when you start you get X. Then 6 months later you get another raise. Then 6 months later that you get another raise. After that raises are given yearly. That is the way most places do it for new grads. However, if you are coming in as an experienced RN, then your raises are annually instead of every 6 months the first year. Hope that helps.
