If you get a job at a union hospital, they should pay you union scale based on your years of experience. I was quoted at step 5 when last year because of my experience, even though it wasn't with that company, when I interviewed with a union facility. A friend recently left our non-union hospital in Boston proper (we were both making $31/hr with 4 1/2 years experience, so I gather fullefect1 must be at a union facility) and went to work at a union hospital in the suburbs and is being paid scale based on her experience. With 14 years experience, I'd say you should expect probably $45-$50/hr. Non-union hospitals don't have union scales to abide by though and don't care as much about market comparisons as they say they do (there's no shortage of nursing applicants up in Boston)... with a BSN and 14 years experience, I'd say you'll be a good applicant to many Boston hospitals... the problem would be that with that much experience they'll also view you as an "expensive" nurse... my old hospital now only hires new grads because of how cheap they are.
