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.
