Steps to Refer


Are You Eligible?

  • You must have an active status in the DeKalb Medical payroll system; this also includes PRN staff.
  • The person you refer must be a qualified applicant to receive an incentive through this program.
    • An applicant is defined as: a qualified individual not currently employed by, or on the payroll of, DeKalb Medical.
  • The applicant must be hired into the approved position for which you referred them.
    • Travelers and per diem nurses already affiliated with DeKalb Medical are ineligible to be referred. New graduate nurses are also ineligible to be referred.
  • Employees who resigned in good standing from DeKalb Medical must wait one year after the payroll termination process is complete to be considered an eligible applicant for this referral program.
  • Current employees completing nursing school are not eligible as referral applicants.


Have You Done the Following?

  • Submit a completed nurse referral form prior to the date the position is offered to the applicant. This form can be found in the Nurse Referral Form tab above.
  • You can submit this form in three ways:
    • Fill in the form online. Print it and turn it in to the human resources office at your campus.
    • Fill in the form online. Print it and fax it to 404.501.0794 ATTN: Natalie Jones
    • Fill in the form online. Save it to your computer as a PDF and email it to natalie.jones@dekalbmedical.org.


So…How Do You Get Your Money?

  • You will NOT receive your referral incentive pay if your nurse referral form is received after the applicant’s original application is put on file. 
  • If your referral is hired, you will receive your incentive in two parts:  
    • 50% of payment after the new employee has completed six successful months in the hired position.
    • 50% of payment after the new employee has completed 12 months of continuous employment in the hired position.
  • This payment will be part of your regular paycheck and is subject to all applicable state, federal and FICA taxes, which will be deducted and must be reported as part of your yearly earned income.
  • If you or the person you referred terminates employment from DeKalb Medical prior to completing the payment timeframes listed above, you will forfeit the remaining incentive pay.
