Pay? Same as clinical RN?

I've been thinking about applying to case management were I work, and I'm wondering if the pay will be the same as I get now, if I work for the same company? Currently I'm an acute care clinical RN on medsurg-tele. Obviously I'll lose my night shift differential, but I just bought a house last year and I can't really take a pay cut. Case management is something I've always been interested in, ever since even before nursing school, and I would like to apply. I'm hoping I could stay PRN on the floor though, so I don't lose my skills.... do you think that might be an option?

Also, is the pay usually hourly or salary? I have 3 years experience at this facility, a total of 6 years experience as an RN

It varies by facility/org. Most CM positions that I know of are salaried, and pay about the same as the floor. You'd be better off to apply and get the details during interview process. Just because they offer doesn't mean that you'd have to accept the position if it didn't meet your needs

OP:  Pay in my experience is not the same as bedside nursing.  Also, from experience it is a good idea to keep a clinical job per diem.  Keeping a bedside position per diem will not only help supplement your pay, it will give you options to return if you change your mind.  Good luck! 🙂

I worked as a staff nurse at my facility and CM. In my case, I was hourly for both. Pay was higher in CM in my case. I made more in the long run as a CM because 40 hrs vs 36.
