Ive seen hospitals offering up to 25 thousand US dollars to sign on with them for RN for only 2 years mininum work in some cases
Are there catches to this practice - like for example are you paid less than at other hospitals if you were to take a job there with no bonus?
Here in Canada, we dont have huge ones (I might be wrong tho)...the biggest ones ive seen were 5 thousand Canadian dollars
Not that im complaining!

The catch is that you have to work in the places that offer them.
How does the saying go: "If it sounds too good to be true . . ."
Ten grand: paid out over two years, offered for specialty units alone. That's as close as I've come to a 'big' sign-on bonus that actually equated to a decent working condition. I've done that twice, each time, with no regrets (except that the 4 'installments' of $2,500 equals about $1,770 per installment, after taxes).
