HELP, Newbie here, Am I getting fair pay?

  1. I have worked for a rural HH company for three months now. This is my first HH job and only my second year of nursing as an LVN. I am doing approx. 30 to 40 visits a week and am getting 23.00 per visit plus a 2.00 per visit bonus to have my paperwork done in 24 hours. Here's my question...I am getting 20 cents per visit (not per mile) for each trip under 21 miles, if the trip is 21 miles or more, I get 5.00 for that trip one way. I average 120 miles per day, not including going to and from work. Is this a normal way of compensating for car usage? Also, so many trips are so far apart I find a lot of lost time in travel that I could be seeing patients. And lastly, would negotiating with management be considered "dangerous"? Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated. I really like the people I work with but am feeling I may be getting the short end of the stick. Thanks in advance!

    What state do you work in? Salaries vary an awful lot by the area you're in.
