I am looking for my next assignment and I submitted to one so far (two days ago). How do you negotiate pay with your company/hospital. They want to pay me $32 but I think I can get more. My recruiter was VERY hesitant when I brought this up and said "maybe I can get you a dollar more, but you won't get your travel reimbursement" and she quickly changed the subject. Is pay negotiable or not? I am on my first assignment and I did not even try. Why do I feel like my recruiter is telling me a story???
