    Yes our institution pays a preceptor differential for permanent new hires (travelers and students are exempt) of ​$2.50.

    * They get paid each nurse they precept. Being a preceptor can also be used for their annual review and clinical ladder.
    * The differential is not based on how long the new RN stays.

    Subject: Questions regarding compensation for precepting

    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!
