Shift Differentials

  1. Hi. At our facility the powers that be are looking at retention of nurses. One of the things that was brought up by a fellow staff nurse that would aid retention was an increase in shift diffs.
    We currently get
    1.50 for 3-11
    2.75 for nights
    and 1.50 for weekends.
    What do you all get? I would like to be able to take back comparable rates.
    Also does your facility have any creative ideas that they are using fro retention? thankx

    The recruitment and retention council at our hospital is in the process of instituting a three phase plan for differentials. Last July we started a Weekend Differential of 8% hospital wide. In January we increased the shift differential which was $1.00 eve and $1.25 nights to 10% and 15% respectively for everyone making over $10.00/hour so no one would get a cut in differential and in July 2000 the shift differential will increase to 15% and 20% respectively. Since our average nursing salary is $19.60 at this time this increase the differential to $1.96 for eve and $2.94 for nights which isn't great but is defintely a start in the right direction.
