Successfully refer a nurse and get $2,500

nurse referral program picnic basket

The VUMC Nurse Referral program has been extended through June 30, 2017. VUMC will pay $2,500 to an employee who successfully refers a full-time nurse with a BSN degree and at least one year of experience. Successful referrals will also be entered into a drawing for a custom VUMC picnic basket just in time for summer. The purpose of this program is to generate new candidates, so only applications, profiles or resumes entered for the first time are eligible.

Ask your referral to go to the Work at VUMC website and complete an online application. Make sure the candidate includes your name, as listed in People Finder, as the referral source. Make a successful referral and you’ll get $1,250 after the BSN has been employed 90 days and another $1,250 after the BSN has worked at Vanderbilt for a full year. You can refer former BSNs, except those employed with Vanderbilt after Jan. 1, 2014. Managers are not eligible for the bonus; the bonus will only be paid to VUMC staff-level employees.
