Wow, I cannot believe HHC is steping up with the private hospitals. Just curious if BSN get more money?
From what I understand, in most private hospitals, BSNs get 1-2K more on top of their salary, but city hospitals tend to have a flat rate for all nurses (ADN & BSN).
Granted, if you start with say an MSN and/or an NP or even with a substantial amount of experience in another hospital, they will compensate you for that by beginning your salary at a higher rate due to your having certain steps alloted to your contract.
Still, although the HHC is slowly starting to catch up with private hospitals, they are still on average a good 2-3K below their salary rates, but from what most will tell you, the benefits offered are usually better, in the sense that you tend to get full coverage for medical, dental, optical etc.. Where as if you work at a private, you will have to pay a premium for those services..
