And I don't see any "unreasonable dealings" that are flourishing in this case. I don't support "unreasonable dealings" either. What "unreasonable dealings" do you see here? Do you think all ICU differentials are "unreasonable dealings?"
You are right, too; I shouldn't have worded it that way. I guess what I meant is that for the most part we take it as a given that the inquiry proposed in the OP is risky, and I find that unfortunate - - especially since there's no real risk involved in a(n) HCO making a "take it or leave it" offer to an RN.
But, it would be more proper to acknowledge that whether or not this
particular organization's dealings are unreasonble (at least with regard to this topic) would have to be based on whether they would handle an inquiry like the OP's in stride or not. Which we don't know so I shouldn't have said that.
I confess I'm just sort of "blah" over the idea (in general) that at staff nurse level, there's often no great desire for this
nurse, but rather a
nurse - - and that affects all of this that we're talking about (if that makes sense)...if they're looking for a
nurse, then there's no need/right for this
nurse to even bother with any negotiation, and if they're looking for a
nurse then this
nurse who gets the offer better not do anything that might rock the boat...
ETA: To answer your other question, I don't have any strong feelings about care area differentials.
