Does anyone know if I relocate to another state to get experience (which I will be getting paid less than what I would get if I started near home), when I come back as a clinical nurse 2, will I be paid less than other clinical nurse 2's who have started their careers here? Sorry if this question is confusing. In other words, do hospitals look at experienced nurses previous wage at their old hospital and start them off based on that? Or do hospitals pay experienced nurses based on their level of experience? Thanks.
