Good Evening Everyone,
I am a job dilemma and I am looking for some advice. I am a new RN and tomorrow I am going to meet an temp agency to discuss a direct hire position in New York City. I have talked to the contact person twice already. I like the hours of the position but I am not happy with the salary. The job is offering $60,000 annually to work in an walk-in clinic in the city. I am not sure how many patients I will see on an average day but I will find out more tomorrow. However, I believe $60,000 is too low. I want to negotiated for a higher salary, at least $65,000 a year. Any advice? Should I ask the temp agency if the potential employer is willing to negotiated or should I wait for my interview on Thursday.
Also, If anyone is a nurse please let me know if this is a fair salary for working in a walk-in clinic? I don't know what is the average salary for clinic nurses. I am only aware of the salaries for RN working in hospitals because I was an LPN for two years.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions or advices.
