Im also transferring to a different department. According to the recruiter the pay stays the same and my benefits and all just crosses over to the other hospital. Is this typical? I just feel that i should be paid more..after all i have two years experience........Im i being unreasonable or does it make sense since its the the same company that they are both under?:imbar

- May 29, '08 by RN1982I left one hospital for another and make the same. I have a little over two years of experience. Most hospitals have payscale system that they follow based on education and experience. Maybe in another 3 years I'll make a more than 30 bucks an hour but not now. Right now I make 27.11Last edit by RN1982 on May 29, '08
- May 29, '08 by ZuZuTraumaYeah, I think hospitals have set rates and bases for their RNs. Pay goes up with experience and education. Since you are within the same system, i wouldn't expect too much of any change. If you leave the system you may be paid more. However, negotiations occur when you leave the hospital setting and go into private practice.

- May 30, '08 by RN1982Yeah thats what it seems like to me. My friend went from progressive care to the EP lab and didn't get anymore money.
- May 30, '08 by RN1989Many times the only way that you can get more money is to leave for at least 6 months, then reapply. New hires almost always get more than the old employees. I know several people that have done this very successfully.
