1. Just wondering, how much is reasonable to ask for in March when my 1 year contract is up. I make $24/hr in AZ on a busy med-surg ortho floor. I will have 1 yr. experience in March 07. I interviwed with a 5:1 ratio, this changed throughout my year. We started team nursing. Not all staff particpates in team nursing. We have gone up to 12 pts. with 1CNA 1RN(me) and 1LPN. I would consider staying for much more money. How much would you ask for? Or I can go to another hospital!

    I would ask for cost of living, or 3% of your current salary.

    I think 3% is reasonable. I just read where nursing salaries are beginning to level off in many areas.
