    ——Original Message——

    Does your hospital pay nurse preceptors anything extra or provide any other type of incentive? 

    If yes:

    • Are they paid per new nurse or as part of a larger program, like a clinical ladder or a preceptor group?

    • Is the payment or incentive based on retention of the new nurse? 
      • If so, how long must the new nurse stay?

    Thank you!
