To get an overall basic view of salaries in the United States as well as a rough average of salaries please take part.
This is for nurses who perform the duties as outlined by many clinical based hospital rotations during nursing school
This poll is not designed for case managers, nurse managers, full time charge nurses who do not take patient care assignments, etc.
This poll is also not meant to be used as way to say I really do not have it so bad and in someway cause contentment.

That is so sad. You have spent 5 years in college to earn less than a auto worker who has better wages and better benefits. You will get what amounts to Less than $0.24 a quarter in raises and you will not even receive it until you have a year into your position.
The next year you will be looking at around $0.26 in raises per quarter.
With the annual cost of inflation you will be lucky if you break even or net an actual 1% increase in your salary.
Actually you are going to do better in the long run on wages than some of the unions who have settled for as little as a 3 or 5% annual raise though.
Example: A 15% raise over 3 years equals 5% per year.
Hang in there and maybe some day people will wise up or wake up.
