RN Benefits at Bassett

Shift Differential Add-ons

Patient-Centered Care Teams

This concept is demonstrated everyday at Bassett Medical Center when nurses, physicians, nurse case managers, therapists and other care givers share their expertise at daily - often sit down - discussions focused on the best outcomes for our patients. Everyone is clear about the plan for the patient and the plan for discharge. We are all on the same page.

No Mandatory Overtime

Professional Nursing Pathway

A very successful element of Bassett's Professional Practice Model, the Professional Nursing Pathway is designed to: 

  • Validate clinical expertise and promote accountability for quality patient care
  • Appropriately use and reward the education, experience and performance of each nurse
  • Foster increased responsibility and independence
  • Create clinical advancement opportunities for the career minded professional
  • Improve staff retention, recruitment, development and job satisfaction
  • Promote and uphold Bassett's mission, values and goals

Experienced nurses who are newly hired are placed right away on the ladder based on their experience and education. New grads start at the RN1 level and progress to RN2 at about six months. ( A highly experienced nurse with specific expertise may be hired at the RN3 or RN 4 ladder.) A promotion and increase in salary is available to the RN who demonstrates a growth in skills, leadership and a commitment to patients at Bassett.
