Template letter to request better terms and conditions

The inconsistencies in the way practice nurses are paid can make it difficult to ask for a higher salary or improvements to contract agreements. But it’s time to say that enough is enough. Nursing in Practice has investigated the best ways to ask for a raise and better terms and conditions. The key is asking for the right things at the right time, and having the confidence to do so.

Are you unable to ask for a pay increase at your annual appraisal? Are you unsure of how to put your request in writing? Nursing in Practice has made a template letter for you to give to your employer. You can download it here.
