We get nothing. No extra pay; no test reimbursement. (No extra pay for BSN/MSN either.)

This is precisely why I never took a certification exam when I was working in the hospital... it would serve THEM well as they need a certain percentage of their nurses certified for Magnet purposes but wouldn't do anything for me but increase the amount of CEUs I'm required to complete. ;)

I've never worked anywhere that gave you a bonus or a pay bump for having certifications. Sometimes they'll pay for the exam -- if you pass -- but won't pay for the CEUs to keep up your certification.

Fortunately, I got my CCRN at a non-academic hospital, and was reimbursed the fee and got $1.00 an hour for that (and $0.50 for the BSN vs ADN). No reimbursement for CEUs.

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.

Mine gives $2.50 for PCCN and $3.00 for CCRN per hour, plus reimburse the cost of the test if you pass. 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.

Testing fees reimbursed after a successful pass and 2% raise from hourly base rate.
