    Once when I was a CNA at a nursing home, they gave us all butterball turkey or ham gift certificates. It would be even funnier if I were a vegan.

    Teehee. We all just laugh about it when we talk about bonuses this year. We're not going to get anything because we were "bad girls" and went on strike over the summer. I'm sure we'll be made to pay for that for years to come... (but we got better healthcare and the former president of our hospital just worked his last day! things are looking up...)

    Depending on year, SO gets 5-6% of base salary and a gift. Last year it was a 32" TV. The company did better this year so we'll see......

    Don't get jealous, he works over 80 hours a week, hasn't taken vacation time in over 2 years, has never taken PT, and has only been out sick twice in 5 years. I'd trade the Christmas Bonus in for better working conditions in a heartbeat.

    I have received many bonuses in other professions but reading this thread has taught me, once again, that the healthcare field will neglect and abuse their nursing staff at any opportunity. It disturbs me to the point that I am trying to figure out how I can be an RN outside of the healthcare systems.

    Totally off topic... SORRY :spin:

    Bonus? What's a bonus? I do get to work 12 hrs on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I worked 16 on Thanksgiving. On the bright side, this will be the last holiday season ruined by nursing

    We have profit sharing that coincides with Christmas, so we get a check in the amount of 1-3% of our yearly salary about the 2nd week of December. The amount depends on patient satisfaction, discharge cost, etc. It's not technically a holiday bonus, but it acts as one.

    this is my second christmas in my present job. i work as a trainer/assessor for a home care company and i now get christmas and new year off. my kids don`t know what`s hit them as i have always worked either 1 or the other. i must admit it was wonderful last year as i got to spend a full 10 days with my 1st granddaughter who was 14 months old. so you could say that was my bonus. we also got chocolates and a bottle of champagne

    The hospital I work at gave us a Christmas CD and we got to pick a gift out of a catalog...which was probably worth $20.00. I guess I should be appreciative for what we got...but sorta hard to be when they are always working us short.
