Let me explain my story first. I have been working LTC off and on for the past 10 years. Currently, I have been at my current employer for the past 3 years. I started my career as a CNA, then LPN, and finally this year, I received my RN. It was a great feeling to have accomplished this. I thought surely I would get some type of a raise at my current job. Wrong!! My evaluation was due in July, and I was told I may get a 50:twocents: cent raise at that time. Big deal. I immediately started looking for a new job. I hate changing jobs, and finally gave up, and decided to wait until my evaluation was due, trying to be optimistic. In the mean time, one of the places I applied gave me a call. I thought why not, I will go for the interview just to see what they are talking about. Great opportunity for me. More money, better working environment, great benefits. So, I put my notice in, and planned on continuing PRN for them. So my evaluation came and went, no raise...Today I called HR. I was told, well, you are quitting, so the Administrator said you get no raise. What kind of crap is this? This place has left such a bad taste in my mouth. I am seething mad:devil: about this. I told the HR person, which happens to be related to the Administrator how ****** off I was. There are LPNs in the building making more money than I am. She said, well they have worked at the facility longer than you have. I explained to her, if I am the only RN in the building, then by default, I am in charge. Also, the facility gets higher ratings based on how many RNs are in the building. So why should a LPN be making more than me? I am so discouraged. I am regretting ever wanting to better myself. To all the LPNs reading this who think they can make more money as a RN, think again. You may have a rude awakening!!
