I am currently employed in an LTAC for a year now and earning 32 dollar/hour. I started there as a new grad with the rate of 29 and they gave me a salary adjustment after 3 months so my hourly is 32. Now that I have a year, I applied for Med-Surg in acute hospital and I got the job. However, they are only offering me 30.50 dollars/hour. Is this fair?? Why would they offer me less even if I had a year of experience? Help Please! I want to transfer to an acute hospital since the patient ratio is 1:5 rather than 1:8-10 in LTAC with LVN and CNA. Is it worth it to get that 1.50 dollar cut from my pay just to be in acute hospital?
