"Registered nurse accession bonus: A qualified RN who agrees to accept a commission and be assigned nurse duties may receive an accession bonus of up to $20,000 for a three-year contract and up to $30,000 for a four-year contract.
I do not believe there is any extra stipend. I'm a fully qualified ICU nurse with a master's degree and my CCRN. No stipend was offered. Sign on bonus I think is the same for all of nurses.
Registered nurse incentive special pay: A qualified RN may receive annual incentive special pay at a rate of up to $5,000 for a one-year contract, up to $10,000 per year for a two-year contract, up to $15,000 per year for a three-year contract, and up to $20,000 per year for a four-year contract.
Certified registered nurse anesthetist: A qualified CRNA who agrees to remain on active duty may receive incentive special pay of up to $20,000 for a one-year contract; up to $25,000 per year for a two-year contract; up to $35,000 per year for a three-year contract; and up to $40,000 per year for a four-year contract." http://www.airforcetimes.com/project...edical_dental/
