This can only be described as a joke: nurses who change employers or start over during the year do not receive the full nursing bonus. An intensive care nurse from Vienna received only a fraction of the promised 2000 euros for 2022.
In May 2022, the government announced a care package worth one billion euros. The largest part of this – EUR 570 million – was a bonus for employees in the sector amounting to one month’s salary in 2022 and in 2023. This amount has since decreased further. For a 39-year-old intensive care nurse from Vienna even 98.75 euros gross (see facsimile below). How did it come to this?
