Hi, I am a new NP, graduated in May and have been looking for positions since. Only recently my luck seems to have really turned around. I'm working full-time temp to perm job as an NP (my first NP job) and I received two other full time job offers recently. I already declined the one full-time job mostly because it is in primary care, although is is in my "specialty" family practice, I'd prefer to specialize. I received a job offer in South Jersey from a doc in a very small practice ( the doc, a medical assistant, and a secretary) that has the benefits of a larger practice: 401k, group medical coverage etc. because the physcians banded together for malpractice reasons, it's like a franchise.
The doc prefers someone who he can train, so I am his first choice. It's really the perfect job, besides the fact that I have to move to Jersey from western, PA AND the salary benefits package is low. Luckily due to this temp to perm job, I am not desperate, so I plan to negotiate.
I'm having difficulty finding solid evidence that a new full-time NP should get x vacation, x sick time etc. Here's the offer he sent me any suggestions as to what I should consider unacceptable would be wonderful.
The salary range I've seen from simply hired, payscale.com is average 77k-93k either for NP for endo. or FNP in South Jersey. How much lower from the bottom should a new NP expect salary wise?
