Sign on bonuses

  1. 0 I know in Las Vegas a lot of the hospitals do a lot of sign on bonuses and have a lot of incentives to come to their hospital. Do you see a lot of that where you live?

    Negative. Hospitals up here practically want you to pay them for the priviledge of allowing you to work for them.

    I do, only if you have experience. I've seen anywhere from $500-5,000 or 10,000!

    Belle1005 Im glad some people still do it. I know a lot of people have to have experience or sign a contract promising a certain amount of years. I have even seen hospitals offering trips. Maybe it's mostly a Vegas thing.

    I'm in Tampa and I see it a lot for certain hospital systems. I'm jealous of the experienced nurse but I got lucky with a job I wouldn't trade for anything.

    Only for experienced/well-qualified in critical need areas. And most of the time, if they're offering big bucks as incentives, you don't want to work there!

    Is there a nsg shortage in Vegas??? Or are those particular hospitals difficult ones that have to offer incentives just to recruit staff? Are they on strike, or anticipating a strike? Like others have said, incentives are mainly a thing of the past. I would think with California so close, many would have considered relocation even without the relocation bonus.

    But yes, there are some facilities that do have recruitment incentives.

    I don't think that's always true. I've worked for the same hospital and department as a PCT for the past 8 years and I hope after I finish nursing school to return to the CCU. I know earlier this year the hospital advertised nationally for experienced ICU/CCU RN and the sign on bonus was $15,000 plus relocation reimbursement.

    There is a hospital in my area offering sign on bonuses, and the reason is that it s such an awful place to work. You have to sign a 1 year contract an get the bonus after a year. I know 8 people who have broken that contract and walked away from the bonus. I do not know anyone who as gotten the bonus. From my experience, anyone offering a sign on bonus in this job market is setting off a major red flag.

    The ones offering on bonuses are the ones you should run away from.

    When I graduated in 2011, I heard of a hospital in McAllen, TX offering $15,000 sign on bonus. Still not enough to make me move that close to the border lol
