To summarize my current situation, I graduated nursing school
in May 2005, passed boards June 2005, and began working part time Sept 2005 at a local LTC facility. Apparently after one years time, employees receive a raise - mine was a whopping 3%. I relate well with the other staff members and residents. The only disciplinary action taken against me during this first year was a write up over a minor incident.
My question here is how much was your first raise and how long did your facility wait to give it to you? Is 3% common, or should I look for other employment where nurses are more valued?

The LTC that I work at gives the nurses anywhere from 2-4 % raises. With most of them being 3 %.
