Pay wage

Hope this is the appropriate place for this, if not sorry.

Do experienced RN negotiate wage/salary in a hospital setting? Anyone know how compensation or HR office works when it comes to calculating how much to offer?

It'll be 2 years(come jan) of working as a RN in a med-surg floor at a trauma hospital. I got offered a position in IMCU and would begin jan. I'm expecting more because of the hospital I worked at provides so much experience and of course now working at IMCU.

But I'm not sure what the general pay is for this sort of thing. Any advice will be great. Thank you

In general, HR has a "salary range" for your education and years of experience. The range probably isn't very wide. The only time I've ever had room to negotiate was when, with over 20 years of experience, I took a job at a new hospital where the salary grid topped out at 20 years of experience. My sister, who works in California, claims to have been able to negotiate at every step, so possibly it's a regional thing. (On the other hand, my sister's claims are often "truth adjacent.")
