Hello. I was wondering if anyone has info on Kaiser Permanente's pay scale for staff nurse 2. How much is the benefit package? Is it still free for employees? I am in N. CA, and over 10 years RN experience. I know they are unionized, so the wage scale is set, but I can't find the info on the union website. I am just wondering how much of a paycut I would take if I took a job from KP (I work for another health system). I know they just renewed the contract in October, but not sure what they start RN staff nurse 2 pay at. Thanks!
Hi, I work at Kaiser in San Jose,CA. and LOVE IT!!!! I started here over a year ago as a traveler and worked 3 contracts and then accepted a full time position. Pay scale is determined by your years of experience. I have 8 years as a nurse and started in the high $50/hr, then got a 5% increase at 90 days and will get another another 5% raise at my year anniversary. The differential between evening and nights are great also. The managers are very supportive of staff and help us in any way they can. The computer system they use is health connect. I love this system-the entire chart is on the computer. Doctors put in the orders and nurses taking verbal orders is discouraged. In the time I have been here I have taken only 9 verbal orders. I really do enjoy working here and my co-workers are great. Still have rough days-but thats the world of nursing not because of the hospital. I highly recommend my facility. Hope that helps. P.S medical insurance is 100% covered and free for employees
