I am getting picked up by the chemical plant that I have been working at for several months through a staffing agency. It is a large worldwide coorporation. I am the only RN here at this site. I do have 3 paramedics and we have a doctor on sire monday-thursday and do all employee physicals and pre-employment physicals. I also have an ER with 3 beds. Plant has about 1000 employees and 700 contractors so I have around 1700 that I see or am responsible for treating in the ER if needed. I was previously an OR nurse ad ER nurse and this is my first job in occ health. I know they are going to ask me for a salary quote and I don't want to sell myself short so I just don't know what to ask for. It may help to know im in the Houston TX area. Sooooo..... anyone have any ideas? You are more than welcome to private message me if you don't want to reply to the thread. Thanks a bunch!

I agree with JerseyLilly, that is a good site to look at
when I was first hired on it was considerably less than I make now. When I interviewed though, I stated my salary was negotiable. OHN jobs are rare to come by and there will be another nurse that will take what they offer if yours is too high. With the experience I have now, if I ever applied for another OHN job, I would have the qualifications stated in my resume of why they would want to pay me what I asked.
Hope this helps
