    Capped Salary?

    There is another level- which I am already in the process of leveling up. The max on that is $1.00 more. I understand that maximum pay per position. I am frustrated that we were purchased by a larger chain 2 years ago, and the previous ICU nurses with 20 + years at this hospital in the area are making $75+hr. I appreciate they were rewarded for their loyalty,but now to be locked in so much lower seem unfair. Life sometimes forces your hand to change when you are not ready for better outcomes.

    Capped Salary?

    I'm not sure how to approach this, I recently got my evaluation at work. My evaluation was very positive. I work for a large corporate health care company in Westchester County, New York in the ICU for the last 4 years. I have 22 years experience in the ICU with my BSN. I previously was working on the West Coast in a large Trauma hospital for 16 years in a Union hospital. I receive my merit raise, and then about a month later received a letter that said my hourly salary is now capped at $58.10 an hour. Other people have also received this letter after they have gotten their evaluations done. I am shocked, I was wondering if either people with similar experiences and their BSN would share or privately message me with their hourly salary. We rotate triage/charge without compensation. Also, are their salary caps at your hospital? We are paid $0.50 an hour more having our BSN. (That is already included in the $58.10.) HR told me that they had completed the fair market analysis of the local market. It sounds like BS to me. As you can tell, we are not Union. I think it's time to job hunt but I'm just wondering what my salary and experience are worth in the New York metro area. Thank you so much for your help.

    North Vista or Sunrise

    Hi there-- Sunrise all the way!! I have been here for 12 years, and would not go anywhere else. People are great:heartbeat, hospital is union and its not in the Valley system!!! I know North Visa is reconstructing it's image, but...it's a no brainer for me.
