Now, I work at a university teaching hospital and we get boo. Of course....you throw a rock in the air and hit somebody who's got even more letters behind her name than I do. ....boo.

They also used to give $0.75/hr for ACLS but they just quit (I am grandfathered in thankfully). I have a feeling this might go away so I hope to take the test soon and get it paid for, lol. Note: my hospital does NOT pay extra for BSN or MSN and we are not a Magnet facility.
