I enjoy sharing benefits of working as a traveling nurse practitioners and any incentives provided by agencies with my readers.
I am currently working with Comp Health for my assignment in Virginia. I was contacted over the phone last month to go over my annual review. I have worked with Comp Health on and off over the past year.
When I was done with the review, I was notified that after working 500 hours with Comp Health, I am eligible to receive up to $500 in reimbursement for continuing education. Working one 3-month assignment with Comp Health automatically makes you qualify for the 500 hours minimum requirement. However, there is a stipulation where you will be reimbursed for your CEU’s as long as you are committed to your next assignment with Comp Health.
In my case, I met the 500 hours of working with Comp Health, and since I extended my current assignment, this qualified me to receive up to $500 in reimbursement for CEU’s. This can include conference registration fees, nursing membership organization fees, and all certification fees.
This year I am due to renew my Family Nurse Practitioner certificate through the ANCC. This comes with a hefty fee of $350. Luckily this certification is reimbursable through the $500 CEU credit.
This is definitely a nice little perk because permanent positions often cover CEU costs. So it is nice to have these benefits without having to commit to a full-time position.
