    Our Preceptors do get a small stipend/hr for Precepting. They must have attended Preceptor Training Class to get the preceptor pay. The Preceptor pay is not tied to retention.

    Hi, all,
    I was looking for more responses to this question, so I am re-posting it.
    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!
