I am currently working Med-Surg in the hospital setting. I live in Florida, and am making around $27 an hour in the hospital. I interviewed for a job yesterday at a really nice Pediatrician's office. I would be doing mainly immunizations and triage. I really liked the office, but they only offered me $16 an hour! The same rate that they pay LPN's there. The physician said "Our highest paid nurse (LPN's) are paid $16 an hour. I reminded the physician that I was an RN, and asked if that made a difference. The physician told me to consider it over the weekend, but I am really unsure how to negotiate the pay rate. How do I go about doing this? I want at least $20 an hour. Any advice? Thanks!
