    holy crap! no way. unless you'll be regularly beaten on the job, 25k doesn't exist. where i am the sign on bonus is 5k (socal). it used to be 10k but they had to lower it because of this economy crap.

    The Navy or Army will if you have a BSN and fulfill the rest of their requirements. Not sure if the military interests you. Just throwing it out there.

    Outside of the military, I've never heard of such a thing (bonuses that high) in nursing.

    Actually this did exist at one point, u guys don't do your research. My mom did receive a 25K bonus BUT it was located in a small town that no one wants to live in (mcAllen, Tx) and the cost was split for 3 yrs b/c u must work for them for that long. This was like 5 yrs ago though, probably doesn't exist anymore

    This reminds me of an article I read recently that talked about internships for college students. These short-term jobs used to be unpaid positions. Now, not only do the students not earn a dime, in some cases they are being asked to pay for the privilege of participating. We're talking thousands of dollars.

    Let's hope that doesn't spread to the nursing world. I would hate to see employers making new grads bid for entry level jobs.

    No signing bonuses period in my area. Good luck with that kind of bonus outside of the military.

    Not sure if this is still in situ, but www.baptisthealth.net might still have $7500.00 for experienced RNs.

    I signed on for $15K. I know in TX it was $50K about 2 years ago....
