    ​Hello.

    Our hospital does pay nurse preceptors extra. It is $1.00/hr the days they orient. This can also count towards a section of the clinical ladder. Ours is not tied to any retention of that new nurse.

    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!
