Asking for a raise from your employer is never an easy thing to do. For many people, it takes time to work up the courage to speak to their boss about a potential pay increase. If you’ve been at your nursing job for a while, you may be thinking about asking for more money.

This is especially true if you’ve been with the same employer for several years without seeing an increase in pay or benefits. Consider the size of your company, and if you think they’d be willing to entertain a pay raise.

If you do your best work every day and have proven yourself to be a reliable and dedicated employee, but feel that you aren’t being properly compensated, consider asking for a raise. Remember that the worst that can happen is that you’ll be turned down.

Should your pay not meet your needs after years of dedication to an employer, you may consider seeking a new job with a higher salary. Luckily, there are many RN jobs seeking qualified candidates.
