After WSNA announced the pay incen­tive exten­sions on August 2, 2021, CNO Ruth Flint notified WSNA that more units have been included. While WSNA still believes is should include all depart­ments the following are the units that are eligible for DTI through October 2, 2021:


  • MED-SURG-9TH FLOOR — All Shifts
  • MED-SURG 4TH SOUTH — All Shifts
  • MED-SURG ONCOLOGY — All Shifts
  • EMERGENCY DEPART­MENT — All Shifts
  • CLINICAL DECISION UNIT — All Shifts
  • 6 FL NEURO-TRAUMA ICU — All Shifts
  • 5TH FLOOR CARDIAC ICU — All Shifts
  • PROGRES­SIVE CARE UNIT ‑PCU — All Shifts
  • MED-SURG ACUTE 2 — All Shifts
  • AMBULA­TORY CARE CENTER — All Shifts
  • 3 SOUTH M‑S TRANSI­TION — All Shifts
  • FAMILY BIRTH CENTER — All Shifts


Highlights of the Agree­ment:
Record your Spot Pay/​DTI/​ESI in the Excep­tion Log on your unit.

Extra Shift Incen­tive $5/​hour.
May be stacked with other incen­tive pays providing the criteria for ESI has been met.

  • The nurse must work a direct patient care shift.
  • The nurse must have an assigned FTE of 0.6 or greater
  • The nurse must work his/​her assigned FTE during the work week in which he/​she picks up the extra shift(s) in order to receive the incen­tive pay. If a short notice absence occurs in the workweek the extra shift is worked, the nurse will be ineli­gible for incen­tive pay

Spot Pay Shift Bonus $15/​hour
Addresses unplanned absen­teeism on short notice. Short notice is defined as agree­ment to work an unsched­uled shift with 24 hours or less notice prior to the start of the shift.

A nurse will not be eligible for Spot Pay Shift Bonus if they are receiving DTI.

Double Time Incen­tive Pay (DTI)
When the core schedule has unfilled shifts, RNs will be encour­aged to sign up to work extra shifts.

In the event more nurses volun­teer and/​or are signed up for a given incen­tive shift than needed, manage­ment will endeavor to rotate incen­tive shift oppor­tu­ni­ties.
