Unpaid Registry Orientation

I am working with an agency for registry and I oriented with a preceptor for one shift for a hospital. When I asked about getting paid, my recruiter told me that I was not going to get paid since some hospitals do not pay for orientation. Is there something shady going on? I cared for patients and charted too.

Then the agency needs to pay for it in my humble opinion!   Did they tell you that you wouldn't get paid, is it in the contract?  They should have made that clear to you before you did the orientation.  Have you gotten paid to orient at other hospitals?  I don't know about the legalities of charting and not getting paid, worth looking into.

I did orient for "free" in the school system because the don't train and I wanted a little idea of what I needed to do.  I did that knowing the end game so to speak.
