Thinking about Per Diem

by jsch jsch (New) New


I am new to nursing and actually this is my first post. I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether per diem nurses get compensated for orientation? I am supposed to start with a company which appears great but I was never told anything about being compensated for my 3 hrs worth of orientation. Is it standard to be compensated and how much? I do not want to sound like I'm haggling over dollars but my colleagues said it was standard practice to be paid for this time. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you should get paid for the orientation if it's required for the position.

Can you clarify - you only get 3 hours of orientation?

You should be compensated your hourly wage. 3 hours orientation! Yikes!
