    Trilldays, I have personal interview with the doc this weekend, will discuss the details of job opportunity. Need your insight regarding the salary range of Psych NP w/ experience in Houston Areas.
    I suppose to work with the psychiatrist group and see patients with psychiatric consult.
    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Hello! i know a couple of people who are doing Psych and they have said that they will look into asking for $110-125k as a new grad Psych NP with no experience.

    I will say that i did turn down a $116,000 job offer as well (after i signed with this job). I was considering it, but it was more of a traditional clinic with high volume patients. i decided the extra $ wasnt worth the stress.

    I had an offer starting as a new grad at $110K and my instructor said, "That is really low". I thought it was decent.
    what is your specialty? where are you located? $110k is NOT "low" for a new grad NP anywhere, IMO.

    I put myself through school for my BSN and FNP degree and graduated from both debt free. Let's just say i worked ALL through school and Took no spring break trips. Went to an affordable BSN state school out of town, and went to a state school for FNP school. And i am 28 years old. I thank God everyday i was resourceful and wise at a very young age and was always scared of oweing someone. The school you go to doesnt matter (as long as it isnt a school with a shady reputation). Feel free to ask what i did, as i love sharing my story with others.

    Oh, and I did turn down a FNP job where I was offered $116,000. Turned it down because it required more local travel than I cared for. So plenty of NPs are making decent pay (at least in the Houston area)

    i would make approx 85k working four 12 hour shifts as an angency ICU nurse. BUT I just graduated FNP school in the Houston area and was just offered a 40 hour job starting at $105,000. Working less hours for more $ works for me!

    Matching with the new residency-like program for NPs
    Have you heard of MidlevelU's new residency-like program for nurse practitioners? Midlevels for the Medically Underserved (MMU) matches participating NPs with clinics and hospitals across the country that meet the needs of underserved populations. MMU sites commit to coaching and mentoring less experienced nurse practitioners as well as allowing time for participation in MMU's professional and clinical development curriculum.

    Please check out Erin's article on MidlevelU for the FAQs... I was in the middle of applying, before i was offered a job in my area. The application is pretty straightforward and it's due at the end of the month. Pass it on to whoever you know!

    The link for the article is
    The Site Short List: Midlevels for the Medically Underserved | MidlevelU

    Check it out and good luck!!!!

    Quote from carachel2
    I'm all about the flex time. Is there any room to negotiate a four day workweek? Is that a big deal for you? Do you have kids?

    I am ALL about flex time too!!!! I have no kids. Im not ready for kids for at least 2 more years. I LOVE having days off during the week. It keeps me sane haha. But i already signed the official offer yeaterday... Is it too late to negotiate it at this point?

    Thanks guys. what do you think about taking this job, and volunteering my time at a free family practice clinic once a month. That way, i can still have SOME experience in kids, etc. This Job is a neuro/family practice gig
