Bonus for Flight Nurses in Maryland/DC?
- 0Apr 12, '10 by rmc2Hello. I heard some hospitals in the Washington DC Metropolitan area offer some sort of bonus or incentives to Flight Nurses. I hear maybe Children's Hospital and University of Maryland. Would any of you happen to know?
Any information will be appreciated. Thanks!

As far as I know they do not use flight nurses- they only have flight paramedics...so we're kind of cut out there.
Its one of the reasons why I, the curious/potential flight nurse to be, am reluctant to try any sort of flight nursing in MD. I know they're there, but how much they're used is another story entirely.

There's also MedStar based out of Washington Hospital Center, which has additional bases in MD; I think they might do scene calls in VA from their base in DC. So if you want to do scene calls for a flight service, then Maryland probably isn't your state. But there's definitely air and ground interfacility CCT work to be had- both services transport some VERY sick patients from outside hospitals.
