So I recently graduated PMHNP school and passed boards. I meet next week with my current employer (FQHC) to discuss position, salary, etc. I have been with this company for 5 years in their ACT program at 25 an hour plus on call, travel. The HR director told me that they recently hired a new grad FNP at 46 dollars an hour so I don't know what pay rate I should settle for if offered. For consideration, this employer has less than optimal benefits, no 401k, and do not give pay raises. New RNs in the CSU are starting at 30 an hour so I feel asking for a bit more than 46 an hour is within bounds. Also, this is a low cost of living area in West Virginia. Anyone have pointers for salary and benefit negotiations? Thanks in advance.
