    I think they meant what is the difference in pay between a NP and a RN that do the same work.

    Perhaps. However, that's not what they asked.

    NP can prescribe medications, and MEDICALLY diagnosis patients while working under a Doctor. The wages vary greatly depending up what type of area you work in and WHERE you work. Probably a starting salary of 70 to 100,000 dollars would be in the ballpark. There are areas, like NY city where they would make considerably more. In NY, you have to have a Master's degree to be an NP.

    Are there states where a Master's degree isn't required for NP?

    Quote from Doodles NP
    It really depends on what it is you want to do. Do you see yourself as the circulating nurse in the OR in a Plastics office? Or being a chaperone in the room following up surgical cases, suture removal, preop consultations. Anything in a Privates office will pay less than lets say the Plastics dept in a teaching hospital. In NY, aesthetic Derms and Plastic surgeons hire esteticians to do their peels. I am an NP and have my own Aesthetics practice. I do injectables, like fillers and Botox, sclerotherapy and peels. I think an exciting position for an RN would be to work in a medispa as the professional who oversees OSHA standards and Hippa compliance; manage customer service issues, be both medical and business minded. Larger medispa and destination spa/ hotels have these kinds of positions.
    Doodles NP, I'm a RN BSN living in the NY Metro Area, considering becoming an NP. I'm glad to hear you have your own Aesthetic practice! (I don't hear/see much about RN's or NP's involved in this area in the City) I also liked what you wrote about working at a Medispa. Would you PLEASE PM me? THX!!

    I work as an RN for American Laser in CA and make $35/hr. The pay range of the RN's in the office is between $30 and $40/hr. Plus monthly bonuses if you hit your 'sales goal.'
