Baylor Healthcare System TDA program

  1. I have a few questions regarding Baylors TDA weekend program and how the salary is determined for an entry level nurse.

    You work Saturday/Sunday 12 hr shifts = 24 hrs and get paid for 36 hrs ?

    Base pay (Entry level) $21.50
    TDA differential $9.00
    Shift differential $3.00 for 2nd shift..not sure how much for 3rd shift.

    So would the pay equal= $30.50 x 24 hours plus shift differential and 12 hours at $21.50 plus shift differential?

    Am I missing anything?

    What if you pick up extra shifts during the week...how is that computed?

    I thought the Baylor Plan was 16hr shifts x 2 on the weekend..and you get paid for 36 or 40hrs..cannot remember.
    Base pay is $21 hr.
    Shift 2 diff is $3.00 hr
    Shift 3 diff is $5.00 hr
    Weekend is diff plus $6.00 hr

    Base pay is only $21 per hour? Is this for an RN? Parkland start new RNs out at $25 an hour!

    The Baylor plan has always been 24hrs work for 36 hours pay. It's now called the TDA plan (Two day alternative).

    Id like to know the pay breakdown as well. Why has no one answered the original question?

    If you pick up extra shifts during the week, you are not getting the TDA differential, only regular shift differential.
    Every unit can only have up to 50% TDA staff working on weekends, so if we have 10 RNs on a Saturday/Sunday up to 5 can be TDA. Most units don't have that many. Positions are posted on their site and labeled as TDA, it's a regular position and not a program. Usually NP students or people who need to be home with kids during the week are in these positions.
    BUMC requires 1 year experience for TDA.

    For a brand new RN, base pay is $25 and you get a (automatic) raise every 6 months for 2 years.

    There is a raise for GNs that occurs every 6 months. I believe it is 50c per 6 months, but I am not 100% sure. This is added to the base pay.

    What? This is not what I asked. Just like before your response had nothing to do with the question I asked.

    Can you just answer the original question at the top of this message if you know the answer please? How does the pay work?

    I misunderstood your question then. No, I do not have the answer on the salary breakdown.
