Hey all, new to the boards and wanted to know if there are any specific details about nursing when it comes to getting raises.
Some background info:
I started my first LVN job in 08/2012 working for a/n pediatric agency. I worked there for 6 months. Due to the low starting pay ($15/hr), no benefits, difficult patient, terrible boss, established co-worker who hogged EVERY weekend for those 6 months and an annoying mother (the patient's, not mine) I decided to switch agencies. I began with a new agency in 02/2013 and everything is much better; 1.50/hr increase, dominion over my schedule, and much friendlier patient family. I've been here only 2 months and realize its too early to ask for a raise, but I would like to know so that I can start planning ahead. -I'm a planner/worrier-
I live and work in the LA county area, in the gateway cities between east LA and OC. I'm not sure how my current wage stacks up against the LVN average for people in my area with similar work experience.
I apologize for typos, but Im on my phone and at work
. Any input would be greatly appreciated, I apologize for the length but brevity is not really my thing
