The institutions I’ve worked at were able to maintain high certification rates by offering a 5-8% salary increase or bonus upon passing but also made it a requirement for clinical advancement to Clin 3 or 4. These incentives worked well.
Best of luck

Hi Elissa, My organization has a similar goal of increasing certification. Part of our CN3 ladder, one of the goals for promotion is to become CPHON certified. We offer the ONCC Free Take program. We do a staff celebration when a staff member passes the exam but we do not offer increase in hourly pay or bonus. I am curious what other institutions are doing and if they are maintaining high certification rates.

Wondering if other institutions offer incentives for nurses to be certified? One of our organizational goals is to increase our percentage of certified nurses; however, we currently don’t offer any incentives. If you do offer incentives, what are they?
Thanks in advance! Elissa
