Night Shift Differential - page 5

What does your facility pay for working night shift? (I define night shift as being 7P to 7A or 11P to 7A.) I have interviewed a few nurses lately for our ICU and each have said they won't work... Read More

    Where I just started, weekday evenings is $3.00, nights $4.88. Weekends are almost double the weekday differentials. I can't for the life of me remember what weekend day differential is..something like $2.30 or so.

    Silly question from a student ...

    Those of you who indicated that your shift differential is a percentage (5%, 10%, etc.) -- do I understand that correctly to mean that your differential is a % of your hourly rate? So that as time goes by, and presumably you receive increases, your differential also increases if you continue to work nights?

    Just curious ...

    3.00/hr shift diff for nocs, plus an additional 4.50/hr for the weekend (Fri, Sat, AND Sun)... I sign up for alot of extra weekend shifts...

    My body misses working days. I prefer evenings, but have kids in activities. Took a pay cut to come to my current job, so I needed the shift diff, to help make the cut more tolerable.

    I don't think I will EVER go back to days.... I don't have to deal with all that miscellaneous crap when the bosses are around.

    Quote from ERNurse752
    There is a $2.70 eves/nocs differential in my facility. I am a new grad, and with that, I make $19.10/hour, which is about average around here. I don't think I could support myself if I worked days! I'm just now getting enough money saved up to start looking at moving out to my own apartment!
    Wow where are u located?

    Before our hospital joined another company we were paid $4 7p-7am. Now that someone else has kind of taken over we get 15% of our base pay which I took a pay cut by now only receiving $3.30 an hour. If I only received 0.75 cents an hour more working nights I would have switched over to days a longggg time ago. The only reason I haven't switched over yet is because we still need the extra $$. DH had to get a job (he was a stay at home dad) a couple months ago becuase on top of the pay cut our insurance went up and we just can't keep up anymore. it stinks..

    presumably I would think this is how it works. the whole increase doesn't happen too often in my dept in my hospital though. We've gotten 2 raises and I've been there 3 years now. The second raise they gave us as a courtesy (I firmly believe for many reasons) b/c a lot of us were going to take paycuts with the decreased SD in the next month.

    No night differential or holiday pay if working on a holiday for RN's, yet our LPN coworkers get time and a half for holidays.
