    Night shift differential and tuition reimbursement are pretty standard, but the differential amount and the maximum tuition reimbursement varies from facility to facility. If it were me, I would want to know the tuition reimbursement amount ($x per year maximum) and I would also honestly think about the chances of me going back to school.

    Ok.
    1. Night shift always gets paid more than day shift. Its called shift differential. The reason being is because Night Shift is a non ideal time for people to want to work. So they have to pay shift premiums in order for people to want to work them.
    2. Tuition Reimbursement is kinda like a benefit. It shouldnt matter who it is, as long as they meet the requirements necessary to get the tuition reimbursement then its usually given out. Unless the place has a contract type thing going on.

    So I say all that to say that you shouldnt be getting paid less because they are going to give you a tuition reimbursement. The difference in pay maybe due to experience or great negotiation skills.

    Hope that helps.
