Help us recruit great talent to our team!

We are constantly working to attract and recruit top talent to join our team. One area of particular focus due to critical staffing needs has been the recruitment of nurses to join Departments of Correctional Services, Health and Human Services, and Veterans’ Affairs.

The Administration is implementing a $1,000 referral bonus to assist in staffing these positions. The referral bonus is available to any permanent state teammate who refers newly hired nurses who successfully complete their probation period. This program is designed to help recruit new great teammates like you to our team.

Specifics about the referral program, as well as tools to help in your recruiting efforts, can be found in the below menu:



  • A $1,000 referral bonus is available to any permanent state teammate who refers a newly hired teammate for specific nurse classifications in 24/7 facilities. The list of classifications can be found here: List of classifications.
  • The bonus is available to teammates who were employed by the State of Nebraska as a permanent teammate as of September 27, 2021 and/or before September 27, 2022.
  • The referring teammate’s name must be listed on the application to receive the bonus payment.
  • The bonus will be paid to the qualifying teammate for each referred new hire who completes original probation. The payment will be made in the pay period following the successful original probation end date of the referred new hire. Note, teammate must be employed by the State of Nebraska at the end of a pay period for which the payment is scheduled to be made.
  • New hires may include former state teammates who are eligible for rehire as a permanent teammate.
  • There is no limit to the number of people who may be referred.
