CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Gov. Dave Freudenthal says the state will review job classifications for nurses on the Wyoming payroll.
Some nurses at the Wyoming State Hospital at Evanston had threatened to resign because of a new pay plan that awards certified nurse assistant supervisors a higher salary than licensed practical nurses and only $2.48 an hour less than what registered nurses earn.
Dean Fausset of the Department of Administration and Information says job descriptions for the nurses may have changed since the state collected documentation for their job classifications more than a year ago.
About 2,500 state employees will receive raises under the new pay plan, which moves salaries to 85 percent of market pay.
