What is VIP? The Variable Incentive Program is a nursing pool developed by CHI Health & Avantas, specifically for flexible nurses who desire the experience of providing high quality care to patients across multiple nursing departments. These incentivized shifts reflect the needs not covered by Core Staff and the Scheduled Resource Team.

How will my rate of pay for the VIP be determined? Your base rate of pay, merit increases, shift differentials and holiday pay are given in an identical manner as for all core staff. Because VIP is designed to value experience and flexibility the Commitment and Incentive pay are as follows:

  • Commitment: 24 hours every 2 pay periods (4 weeks)

  • Required to work in all Inpatient Medical Surgical, Step Down, Critical Care, on-site Behavioral and at a minimum on-site Ante/Post-Partum in Women’s Services.

  • Pay Incentive is paid for all scheduled direct patient care hours worked, up to 60 hours per week.

  • Tech Incentives: $1-5/hour

  • VIP is for you, if you wish to:

  • Be rewarded for your experience and flexibility by working in multiple nursing departments within a hospital.
