My apologies, since this kind of questions have probably been asked already. I did try sifting through old threads but found none that applies to someone who work both places at the same time.
I am starting a new grad RN position at a hospital but I want to stay PRN at my LTC job, which I have been working as an LVN, if they want to keep me as an RN. I know what my base rate will be at the hospital. Can I expect the same rate at LTC? In the old threads, some say LTC pays less, some say more. Also, does being a PRN nurse without benefits warrant higher rate?
I am dreading to bring up the topic with my DON, as I suck at negotiating. In the past I've mostly trusted my employers to give me the fair rate, but I learned that they don't necessarily volunteer a fair rate unless you demand it. So, I'd like to arm myself with current knowledge before I attempt re-negotiation. Thank you for your help!
