If any of you work in a Dedicated Education Unit (DEU), could you share if you receive any financial support such as a stipend, differntial, bonus, etc.... I appreciate your help.

I think this type of unit is a great idea though. But yes there should be a higher rate for the instructing nurse and a decreased novice pay for the new nurse. To facilitate the balanced budget of such a unit. Instead of being just a student nurse program this should be for all those new grads who are expensive to train and can't get jobs.
Its a great idea for a residency program! Where the colleges have taken over the training of what used to be a hospital trained nursing forces, these programs could greatly benefit an understaffed overworked staff nurse.
