I am moving to DC from Baltimore soon and am checking out various hospitals in the area. I've been an RN for 5 years. In regards to WHC's union contract  I see there is a table referring to "steps" in relation to pay rates (https://ct1.medstarhealth.org/content/uploads/sites/6/2019/02/MWHC-Proposal_February-12-2019.pdf  chart page 36) How does that apply to a new applicant with 5 years experience? Is there a general way to explain this chart?   Any reviews about this hospital or other hospitals in the area? What hospitals are worth applying to vs any particular places I should keep my distance? 

I'm definitely concerned with the change in cost of living compared to Baltimore, especially since I'm paying off endless student loans  This year I was able to make $100,000 by picking up high needs overtime shifts. I'm hoping to be able to do the same where ever I end up working in the DC area. 


Feel free to message if you don't want to reply publicly. Any information would be great. Thanks in advance!
