    I'm relocating from Ohio and accepted a position at Riverside Regional Methodist Hospital for $20.28/hr 7a-7p on the oncology unit. This will be my first job as an RN. Sentara offered me a job @ $19.60/hr but I didn't take it. Chesapeake General said $19.38/hr but their shift diff is $8 (I think). Sentara offers up to $15000 tutition reimbursement for new BSN grads relocating to the area and a $2000 relocation expense. FOr that $15000 you have to commit for 3 years. It can be prorated though if you only wanted to do 1 or 2 years. RRMH offered $7500 for 18mo commitment but its a sign on bonus so its taxed (tuition reim. aren't taxed). Hope that helps-

    Actually from speaking with the recruiter from Sentara, the tuition reimbursement is taxed, since it's being given directly to the employee it's considered income.

    They told me something totally different, they emphasized how the $$ wll be on my first check. I do remember them saying that the offer they were giving me was for BSN grads relocating from another state. Oh well, I didn't accept a job with them anyway.

    Anyone from Sentara who took the tuition reimbursement know exactly the deal with whether or not its taxed and when did you actually receive the money?

    For Sentara it's $6 dollars for weekend days. I have been there a little less than 2 years and Sentara paid for my second degree BSN. I also now precept new nurses and that is an extra $3 dollars per hour. Being charge is an extra $1 an hour. I choose not to do it because you still have patients and you have to do bedflow, deal with issues that arise from your fellow nurses, and also staffing. So the $1 is not worth it right now. I would like to have it on my resume, but I will do it right before I receive my Masters in 2010.

    I think weekend nights is $7/hr.
    As I was taking my classes, Sentara paid them and yes you do have to pay the taxes. Each paycheck $200 is put in my check as income, it is taxed, and then taken right back out. I am to work at least two years, which didn't matter to me because I wanted to work at a Trama I hospital. I don't think Bon Secours and Chesapeake General are Trauma I, so they were completely not a choice for me.

    I work Weekends at Sentara and the shift diff is 8 bucks per hour for any off shift including weekends, evenings, nights. At least at the hosp I work at.

    Does anyone know who the Hampton Veterans Hospital in Virginia Beach pays and how that facility is to work for? I'm very interested in working with them and have an upcoming interview?
