BOY, S.E. HOSPITAL IS SPENDING MONEY LIKE HELL ON STUPID THINGS LIKE REMODELING THE HOUSE ON BROADWAY FOR 'executive " meetings, and paying for RUSTY GEESE WHICH ARE FUGLY, and our A.C. IS NOT WORTH A CRAP, IT IS 85 DEGREES in this place most of the time, S.E. EMPLOYEES HAVE NOT had a cost of living raise in 5 years and likely we won't be getting one. New management is firing people left and right and hiring the new head honcho's friends for ceo, but to heck with the employees which thye would be NOWHERE without. WE NEED A COST OF LIVING RAISE NOW!!!!! NO WONDER EVERYONE
LEAVES TO GO TO ST. FRANCIC. Higher pay, bonuses, why not? we mean nothing to these people, it is becoming more and more obvious by the day. this sucks !!!!!

There are downsides to every job I've ever had. Fortunately, you live in the US and can go to work for the other hospital if it is better. With the economy the way it is, there will be other people who would be happy to have your old job.

You know what , as an fellow RN i think 5 years is a long time w/o a cost of living raise.I think we have every right to expect the occasional raise. We worked hard for our jobs. so smart aleck moca 79 , you have no say in what we want. We are very aware of how fortunate we are to have our jobs. I have been in the hospital for 20 years so don't try to act like we are ungrateful. you are probably one of their administrators who keep getting way too much money and great yearly raises. It is easy to judge , but you really haven't a clue about what we need, and we really don't want or need your opinion.

St Francis has given 2.5% increase salary raises every year, plus the quarterly bonuses have been fantastic. The weekend option position pays $32.50 per hour for RN's. They really are the best to work for.

The person who started this thread doesn't know what he or she is talking about. I work at Southeast Missouri Hospital and never once in the last 10 years have I failed to receive a 3 percent annual raise. As for the "geese," they've raised far more money for the Hospital's Foundation than they cost. Each one of those geese has been sponsored by donors. Sponsorships for each of the Nature's Landing geese is around $2,000. Between the geese and the other sponsored landscape (such as the trees and benches on the hillside), the Foundation has raised several hundred thousand dollars. Oh, and the renovation of the Cargle House? Also paid for by private donors; it has NOT come out of Hospital revenue. Get your facts right before you complain.

They were talking about cost of living raises, not merit raises

Maybe we haven't had COL adjustments in several years, but I'll take my merit raises any day because it's a recognition of my contributions to what we do at Southeast which tells me I'm valued. And so what if St. Fran hands out an extra 20 cents an hour once in a while. Can they also say they haven't increased employee health insurance premiums? I don't remember the last time they raised our insurance premiums (and with four kids, that's important to me!)

St Francis has not increased their health insurance premiums. And SE Hospital employees like to forget the fact that St Francis gives out quarterly bonuses, noting like getting an extra $1000 every 3 months! There is over a $15,000 annual salary difference between SE & St Francis RN's, with St Francis being on top.
Not to mention that St Francis, for the 3rd year in a row, made the 100 Best Companies to Work For in America list. SE isn't even on the list!!!!!!!

I've been watching this thread and have been waiting for somebody to bring up that bogus "100 Best Companies to Work For in America" thing... Southeast didn't both to enter...and neither did 95 percent of all the healthcare organizations in the nation! If you'd research that "contest", you'd see that only about 350 organizations even bothered to enter...and not all of them were hospitals! wHAT A JOKE! Southeast, on the other hand, was judged against ALL hospitals by HealthGrades and is one of just 23 in the nation to earn the HealthGrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 rating periods (for patient satisfaction) and Patient Safety Excellence Award for both 2009 and 2010...and that's out of FIVE THOUSAND HOSPITALS!

I read about that in Modern Healthcare, too (that there were approximately 350 heathcare organizations that entered the competition). Seems a little ridiculous that you'd have to "pay" to be evaluated....

I really doubt there is a $15,000 per year salary difference. I've been a RN for 7 years and make approx.$70,000 per year. Our health insurance is a lot cheaper than yours and our RX's are only $15...you can't say that about your health care coverage. We also get 6% of our gross salary put into retirement by the hospital. I know SFMC isn't that generous! You may get quarterly bonuses but our benefits far outreach that amount!! Plus, your quarterly bonuses can be taken away at any time. I worked at SFMC for a short time and the people there are so rude. The staff at SEMH, on the other hand, is very helpful and the nurses are some of the best.

You make $70,000 a year at SE, you make less than the nurses at St Francis. 6% into retirement, that would be $4200 into retirement. And this after 7 years employed.
Now I am looking at my St Francis Personal Benefits Statements...after working 5 years,$89,520 salary,$3721.78 retirement they paid, plus what I put in which is my option, and RX's is $10, same as yours. THAT MAKES A $19,000 difference in salary & retirement!!!!!!!!!!
And you people keep saying those bonuses can go away, well they haven't yet! That is a lie you like to tell youselves!
As far as the person above who quoted HealthGrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award... well St Francis wasn't part of that. If it would have been included in the study we would have beaten SE by a mile.
And perhaps you didn't realize that our quarterly bonuses are based in patient satisfaction, and we rank above 90% every quarter.

To too funny. Do you have just a 2 yr RN degree? Is this pay the norm for St. Francis or do you specialize in a certain area? I am only asking because I am taking classes for my RN degree right now. I was going to try to work in a doctor's office because of the hours, but the salary you stated could definitely make me apply to the hospital! Sorry this is a little off topic, but I just had to ask.

I know that the pay is a little less but having a lighter patient load and more time with my loved ones is more important. For these reasons, I love my position at Southeast!

@WOW....
If you work at a doctor's office you will work 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, a lot less pay and less benefits. If you work at St Francis, you can work 3 days one week and 4 days next week, or do weekend option, and make a significant amount more. Nice to have 3 or 4 days off in a row.
St Francis has a student extern program which I highly recommend. As a student nurse you would be eligible for this program but you will need to apply for it ahead of time. Go to www.sfmc.net for info. The extern program allows you a hands on job training and you can pick 4 departments and rotate between those 4 areas of the hospital to see how you like it. Well worth it! At the end of the program then you can apply for what area of the hospital you prefer to work in.
As far as I know there is no pay difference between the 2yr and 4yr RN degree.
