    I started off in LTC at $19.05. When I moved to a hospital, my starting pay was $18.03, so I took a pay cut for acute care experience. I have had this job for 8 months now and a raise has never even been mentioned. I am a RN, by the way. I worked as a RN for 9 months in 2012 and only made 22k (full-time net pay).

    Original offer for RN position was a lower base but was able to negotiate due to having leadership/management experience in previous career and a non-nursing degree.
