On weekends, dayshift gets base +35% plus shift diff after 3p. Night nurses get base +50% +diff. Charge gets $1 extra I think. No extra pay for pulling or floating, no extra pay for working on a holiday. I personally think the diffs are awesome at this hospital.

so total that's $7.55 weekend evenings, and $8.25 weekend nights. Not too bad I guess.

time-and-a-half for 4 hours over your scheduled shift
double time for working at least 4 hours of your weekend off
We recently went to a dollar-per-hour schedule for the differential, but grandfathered in current employees. I am not aware of the new pay scale, but know there is a cap, and it is considerably less than the percentage scale.
Feb 9, '07Joined: Feb '07; Posts: 9I work at a non-union hospital. We get 2.00 hr after 1500, 4.00 hour after 2300. We also get 3.00 hr for preceptor and 3.00 for full time charge, 1.50 hour for relief charge. There is also a 4.00 weekend differential and 20.00 hour for "incentive shifts". Incentive shifts are paid to whoever picks up and extra shift in a unit where core staffing is down by 20%. So tomorrow I'm working incentive, charge, weekend and preceptoring for a total of 30.00 hour for the first 8 and 33.00 for the last 4 before I even get my base pay!

Evenings (a work shift scheduled to begin on or after 11:00 a.m. and before 7:00 p.m., or has a majority of scheduled hours between 3:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.) gets: $1.00/hr
and in addition to the hourly shift premium, a quarterly bonus of two hundred dollars ($200.00) will be paid to a full-time employee who works a complete quarter on evenings. In addition to the hourly shift premium and the quarterly bonus, a bonus of one thousand five hundred dollars ($1500.00) will be paid to a full-time employee who works four consecutive quarters on the evening shift. Those numbers are prorated for appointment fraction.
Nights is defined as a shift that starts between 7:00 p.m. and before 3:00 a.m., or has a majority of scheduled hours between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. the hourly differential is: $1.25/hr
In addition to the hourly shift premium, a quarterly bonus of three hundred dollars ($300.00) will be paid to a full-time employee who works a complete quarter on nights. In addition to the hourly shift premium and the quarterly bonus, a bonus of two thousand dollars ($2,000.00) will be paid to a full-time employee who works four (4) consecutive quarters on the night shift, prorated based on appointment fraction.
If they assign you to more than four weekend shifts in a four week period, you get $2.00 her hour for the extra shifts above four. but if you volunteer to work weekends:
An employee who volunteers or who is assigned and works a fifth (5th) and/or sixth (6th) weekend shift within the eight (8) weekend shifts in a four (4) week scheduling system, will be paid an hourly bonus of three dollars ($3.00) for all hours worked on the fifth (5th) and/or sixth (6th) weekend shift.
An employee who is assigned and works a seventh (7th) and/or eighth (8th) weekend shift in the same four (4) week scheduling block will be paid an hourly bonus of five dollars ($5.00) for all hours worked on the weekend shifts starting with the fifth (5th) weekend shift.
That's a bit hard to understand, I know. But it boils down to very little moola.
We get NOTHING for charge and nothing for precepting.

Feb 22, '07Occupation: RN Specialty: LTAC, Homehealth, Hospice Case Manager ; From: US ; Joined: Feb '06; Posts: 822; Likes: 75We only have the 2 shifts & it's a flat base pay w/no diff for the last 4 hrs, but there is a $7.00 shift diff for 7p-7a.
Weekends for days is $5.00 hr over base, not sure about nights.
Over time (40 or more) is time + half & if that time is on a weekend, it's paid on the diff scale.
We don't have the usual "charge nurse", we have 3 "nursing supervisors" that rotate & that is their regular job...not brave enough to ask what their pay is!
Preceptors get $1.00 hr extra.
