Just was wondering if any dialysis company that you work for has a pay scale?
The last company I worked for had a pay scale such as
starting nurse to 6 months: $20.23
step 1: $21.39
step 2: $22.65
step 3: $23.92
step 4: $25.29
step 5: $26.69
This pay scale is 3 years old and the manager could start the nurse out at which step she thought you deserved to begin with, another words if you were a new nurse, but worked there as a CNA then you could start out at 23.92 and work your way up. )(this pay scale was from a nursing home)
When I tell the manager that I'm getting beginning nurse pay she tells me that she doesn't know what to pay us, that no one has told her. We are a facility that was bought out about 1 year ago.
Our nurses have typically started out slightly lower than what they would make in a hospital. I'm not sure how much that is for your area or if that is how they do it there. I do know that the company is going to a "step type" system soon. 1 level for RN-ASN, next for RN-BSN, Higher if you add CNN to the list and so forth.
Sorry I don't have a more straight forward answer for you
Also, raises have not been great for a few years...there has been a company wide cap on raises. Can't complain though...my husbands company hasn't been giving them at all for 3 years.
