I've been offered a position through St. David's in Austin. Pay is base 28/hr, there are differentials but I don't have those in my offer letter. I have been an RN for 3 years. I started at 28.50 in 2014, but this was in Philadelphia, PA and I know Austin is a lower pay scale. I've scanned these boards and "high 20s" sounds about right to me, but I wanted to check. Have any of you bargained with an HR offer and been successful in getting a higher offer? Or are all RN salaries based on a rubric where 3 yrs experience = $28/hr, and that's just how it is?
