Got a question. Got a job offer today for a contingent staff RN position on a m/s unit. I was under the impression that contingent paid better because you have no benefits. However I was offered 24.50/hr. Is this reasonable? I was thinking of something in the range of 30 to 37/hr. The HR person who offered the position said "yah we used to pay contingent more 10 years ago, not so today"... I don't know, sort of sounded shady to me. Anyways I am going to call HR tomorrow to tell them when I can start. Would it be out of the question to ask for more money?
