I am new to hospice nursing and have had a job offer that I would really appreciate your input on:
-27.00 dolloars/hr with 40 hr work week= my salary.
-44 cents per mile
-no call unless the call nurse can't make it
-a fairly spread-out territory (how far is too far???)
-up to 15 patients :uhoh21:
-open access care
-nsg home and assisted living patients
-i am relocating to do the job without relocation assistance (its my dream job)
-i will also be "drumming up business" by going visiting to diff hospitals etc. to introduce myself and what our services are (looking forward to this part too).
-benefits that sound pretty good.
When and how do I negotiate for more/less etc. ?? I could really use some mentoring on this guys because the area where I am currently living is sadly short on positive nurse-to-nurse vibes.
Please feel free to PM me if you would like. I appreciate the input more than you know.
