Shift differentials? - Page 3Register Today!
- May 2, '12 by PudnluvOurs is a percentage of base pay. 20% if you work at least 4 hours past 6pm. This includes all your time. I work 11am to 11pm and get the full differential for all 12 hours. It 30% for the weekends. Time and a half for holidays. Also, if you are a permanent off shift, you get full differential for holiday and vacation pay.
- May 2, '12 by KelRN215Shift differentials vary by facility but most do it in some way or another.
When I was an aide, the differential was 10% for evenings, 15% for nights and 10% for weekends. A weekend evening or a weekend night got both. When I was a hospital nurse, your differential was based on your quarterly percentage of off-shifts. My last 3 months there, I was essentially working permanent nights but getting paid a 50% "rotater" differential because the hospital had designed a system to completely screw its rotating staff- which was the majority of the staff. Permanent night staff got somewhere in the neighborhood of $4-$5 differential. There is no extra weekend differential. Compared to what nurses elsewhere in the city made, this was low. I have a friend who makes $7/hr for nights and $4/hr for weekends... so when she works a night weekend, she gets $11/hr extra.
- May 2, '12 by rubylipstick1$2.30/hr extra on nights and $2.55/hr on Saturdays and Sundays. Stat holidays are time and a half.
- May 2, '12 by Good Morning, GilThe shift diff for nights is not even close to making working nights worthwhile. Just my opinion. I'd much rather work day shift (and the faster pace, which really isn't that much faster on my unit) and take the pay cut, but I'm new, so I'm happy to be in the unit of my choice, and working with a good team, as well. I'd imagine that scaling back to working part-time on nights once I have kids would be beneficial child care wise, however, since I'd be able to stay home with the kids that way, and hubby can watch them at night.

$3.25/hour after 3pm
$5/hour after 2300
$3.75/hr after 1500 Friday until 07 on Monday.
So a Friday night shift is worth an extra $8.75/hour.
Our contract is currently under negotiation and we're not happy. They won't touch these rates but are looking to nickel and dime us in other areas.
- May 2, '12 by Reese2012My hospital does not offer shift differentials but I think that is because we are paid 18.00hr (new hire) on 3-11pm shift
- May 3, '12 by turnforthenurseRNEvery hospital I have worked at gives shift differentials for evenings/nights. At one hospital, I was a PCNA and I worked nights...our shift differential was $1. At another hospital where I worked a tech, our evening differential was $0.50 and night was $1. I think for nurses it was a little more, but not much. Where I work now as an RN, my evening differential is close to $4. and night differential (from 0000-0700) is close to $7. Weekends are like $5 and $8 for me. This is why I don't want to go to days!
- May 3, '12 by RNperdiem$10/hr extra for weekends and time and a half for holidays. Guess which shifts I prefer?
- May 3, '12 by SmartBlondeRNAt my hospital its an additional 6% of your hourly rate added per hour for 3p-11p shift, 8% for 11p-7a shift and then everyone, including 1st shif,t gets an additional 8% per hr for weekends (on top of the shift differentials). Oh and holidays are double time and a half if workedLast edit by SmartBlondeRN on May 3, '12 : Reason: additional info
- May 3, '12 by 0402I work straight nights, 7p-730a. I get $3 until 2300 and $4 from 2300-0700. We get $4 more for weekends, so $7 and $8. I came from a union hospital that did straight day and night diffs (no evenings, unless you actually worked that specific 8 hr shift, which most worked 12s). We got $4.65 for nights and an additional $5 on the weekends.
