Dec 29, '01the facility where i work has a program where if you work 32 hrs. you get paid for 40. the catch is that you work double shifts on sat and sun. no holidays and im home all week to be with the kids. but by my last mn shift i am dead tired and afraid of making mistakes or getting killed on the way home. mmmm....after reading my reply i dont know if it is worth it anymore.
Dec 29, '01If I get called in for an extra shift, it is $7.50/hour more. This is a LTC facility. But the administration just eliminated all overtime, unless it is above the 40 hours in a work week. I am screwed because I am a part time employee and now will not get any overtime, ever, because I do not work 40 hours in a work week. I did get overtime for any work over 8 hours for the first 6 1/2 years I have worked there, this is a new change effective immediately. I was shocked to get the little notice in my paycheck. Happy Holidays! Bah humbug!
Dec 29, '01We have crisis pay ($50/4 hours), and double crisis pay ($100/4 hours(usually w/e's only)). Both are determined and offered by the nursing supervisor. Plus if you're full time then you get time and 1/2 on top of that. I've worked an OT Saturday night shift (8*) c/ double crisis pay a couple of times that turned out to be over $600 before taxes c/ night and w/e differentials. Pretty sweet shift to pick up!
Dec 29, '01I would like to work a baylor like the post above. Work 32 for forty or 24 for 30. Either way.
As for incentives. We sign up a head of time for OT, for each shift we get time and a half. No additional bonus.
Dec 30, '01Extra Shift Bonus Pay For RN:
Weekday: 4 hours $25
8 hours $50
Weekend: 4 hours $50
8 hours $100
12 hrs $150
We also get a weekend differential (for working a non-regularly scheduled weekend) of $35/day.
If you do not previously schedule this XWD, but are called in, you also get "call back pay".
All this is in addition to any OT pay.
Working an extra weekend is pretty schweeeeeeeeet.
Also get a free meal ticket to the cafe' ..yuck
We've been doing this since September of 2000 and have YET to burn out. It's been wonderful during staff shortages...and we love the extra moneyLast edit by nurs4kids on Dec 30, '01
Dec 30, '01Timonrn, where do you work? I didn't think that there were any more hospitals here in the Twin Cities that had contracts due that soon (in May). I haven't been called in for extra shifts since at least last June; and I don't work any extra shifts anymore because it isn't worth it to me. I don't have my contract here or I'd look it up, but I believe that we get $100 bonus for any extra 8hr. weekend shift we work. We have nurses who work Baylor shifts (2 12 hour shifts/ weekend and get paid for 36 hours), nurses who only work 3 8 hour shifts/ every weekend and get paid more, and a group of us work only 1 weekend out of every 3. We also get paid extra (only $1.25/hr) for working our usual weekends.
Dec 30, '01At the hospital where I work RN's and LVN's earn time and a half for coming in to work an extra shift. CNA's earn a $5/hr bonus for working an extra shift. We work 12 hr shifts; anything over 12 hrs is double time. Staff are not often asked to stay beyond 12hrs. However, bonus shifts are usually available.
Dec 30, '01Our LTC facility gives $25 extra if we have a big need, and they will tell us in advance--ex., New Year's Eve or X-mas. We're supposed to get a bonus for working our weekend off as well. That's on top of time and a half for regular days and double time for holidays.
Dec 30, '01Our hospital revamped its Nothing-Nada policy. They now pay an extra $5 per hour when you work 4 or more hours beyond your normally scheduled hours.
Dec 30, '01If it is a really critical need (determined by nurse manager) we get $10.00 more an hour plus the over time if applicable. Sometimes I will be asked to work extra and be offered the $10.00 and sometimes the extra money is not offered. Whether I accept to work just depends on my state of mind at the time. Sometimes I say I will work but only for the extra money. If they don't want to pay extra then I won't work extra.
Dec 30, '01Right before Christmas my hospital instituted a new program that if you work over your commitment you get $7.00/hr more plus time and 1/2 if you're full time. The kicker is all the part timers and per diems are to asked first so the full timers usually get sh-t on as usual. Our per diems already make 30/hr and sometimes more depending on how many units they will work. Full timers will be lucky if we ever see it.
