Subject: Future Histotechs pay
> Dear histonetters, (sorry if this is a re-post)
I would like to clarify that the nurses that I am talking about are
Associates degree (2 year degree) nurses. I do know a few nurses that
went on to obtain their BS and even a few that went on to obtain their
Masters, however, they were not compensated for obtaining the higher
Accociates Degree RN's right out of school do have to work for a year for
a meager $16 an hour before they can make the big bucks.But, that is the
pay ($16 an hour) that a registered Histo tech makes with 10 + years of
experience, give or take a few dollars.
I have seen more and more job postings recently for histotechs that
require an associates and even BS degrees, but the pay is extremely low
Histotechs pay in general have increased tremendously in the last few
years (compared to 12 years ago when I first started out as an histotech)
because of the shortage of histotechs on the rise and there is going to
be an even worse shortage of histotechs with the new requirement of the
AS in 2005. There are not that many histotech schools.
That is why I asked the question Will our pay go up with the higher
education requirement? Also, with the shortage , that is only going to
get worse, will this help us with more pay?
Just my two cents worth.
