I am an ICU nurse with many years of experience.
I very rarely call in. I think I called in once in the last year, but that may have been last year. I work extra shifts frequently.
I do not get involved in unit politics or drama. I work hard and do not get written up.
Other nurses treat me as a resource person.
With all of that, I got graded a 2.25 on a 1 to 4 scale.
The person doing my evaluation is brand new and said my evaluation was done by "charge nurses" but would not name who did it.
I am getting a 2.5% raise due to this. This means I am really getting a pay cut due to inflation.
Putting my vexation about the review aside, do I have a right to be as irritated as I am about a 2.5% increase? What are y'all getting?
I'm trying to breathe deeply and get my head straight before I talk to the unit director.
