PAY scale for beginner RN in LTC

  1. 0
    hi, I am offered a job as an RN full-time in a nursing/retirement home. it is in south central PA, Lebanon county. Does anyone know how much a beginner would make? It can be hourly or annually. The only information I got was from indeed.com which gave me $46,000+ - $59,000 LTC annual income as an RN so I am not sure. The manager asked me what my desired salary was nd I told her the beginner's salary since I have no experience and I'm kind of desperate at the momen they are the only one who actually called me in for an interview!

    Anyway, I wanna know my options so I won't seem like I am expecting too much and wind up not getting the job, but at the same time I don't want to be given a smaller than average salary because having this job is really important to me. I have yet to discuss the details of the job offer on my appointment with them so I wanna know the facts before I come in for the meeting.
