How school nurses can calculate their gross annual salary

How to calculate your gross annual salary using your paycheck 

  1. Add together the recurring gross, recurring education differential and recurring longevity differential that appear on your paychecks.
  2. Divide the total by 14 (for the number of calendar days).
  3. Multiply that amount by 365 (366 during a leap year).

How to understand your paycheck

There are three components that make up the gross annual salary for nurses:

  • Base plus experience differential
  • Education differential
  • Longevity differential

Consult the nurses’ salary schedule to find your pay rate and longevities »

Here are two examples of salaries under our new contract.

Hourly Pay Rate (for hourly employees)

The formula for calculating the hourly rate shall be 1/1213 of the annual salary.

Annual salary + education differential + longevity divided by 1213 = hourly rate
