    Quote from Neuro Guy NP
    I practice in PA and NJ. $80,000 is WAY TOO LOW. Hell should freeze over before you take that salary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Based on a 40 hour work week that comes out to only $38 per hour and I will tell you from a manager's perspective that he is low balling you. I can name several institutions in your area paying way better than that.

    $105-110,000 is what you should be going for all that responsibility. For experienced NPs, that is too cheap, but you are a new grad, so I think the 105ish area is fair for now. If he cannot offer you that, there are plenty of other places that will. You can PM if you like.

    In fact, you should PM me.
    Wow. After doing a little research myself (I'm not from the NJ area) I want to second this. It appears the average NP salary is well over 100,000. You're a new grad so you should expect slightly less than average but 20-30,000 less than the mean salary in any given area is offensive. I hope you're able to negotiate it up. Keep us posted!

    I do not see this as an acceptable contract. The $80, 000 seems very low, for the hours you will be putting in, which will probably be 60 to 70 based on the expectations in the contract at 60 hours a week (which will be a consistent amount of work week you are making only $25.00 and hour. You will have to provide your own Malpractice insurance at probably $1200 to $1800 a year. Is there profit sharing? You are being low balled

    18 hospitalized renal pts that you don't know can be a lot. Depends on how many on CRRT, ECMO, multiple drips, etc..

  • Jan 21

    18 patients is a lot in itself..
    - base pay too low, i would expect 100k for a new grad
    - 2500 cme
    - 4 weeks vacation
    - extra pay for oncall

    ....but Jules if you work me like an MD, than I should get paid a solid wage and 80k isn't a solid wage even in my little corner of the world

    I think the base salary is way too low. And correct me if I'm wrong, but will you be working 6 days a week, in addition to call? If so, then they are really not paying you enough. It sounds like this job will take up a great deal of your time for not a whole lot of compensation. I hope they are open to negotiation.

    FWIW-All of the providers in my practice-MD, NP, PA work what might be considered a cheesy Mommy friendly schedule. Four 9 hour days and excellent pay make for a very nice life. It doesn't make any of us lesser providers...we just have a really good gig. None of us want our jobs to own us.

    Save yourself some money and cancel the ANCC. You don't need both certifications.

    Quote from chare
    And who exactly is it that is "shaming" you?
    Nursing schools (and some on this forum) are full of the following silly attitude: you couldn't possibly know what you want until after you are experienced, and you can't be experienced without a year of med-surg, so shut up about your desires and go work med-surg for a year minimum. (As if med surg wasn't its own specialty, it is)

    And I think that attitude is bludgeoned into some NS. A better message students is: "keep an open mind and be willing to switch tracks."

    One can learn a little about a poster in a single thread, but OP is clear and I like OP's determination. I'd want that determination in a NNP.

    No one on this internet site (or any other) is "real" enough to me to cause me any distress. I'm human and can get irritated just like anyone else, but I don't ever feel bullied in situations where I can simply log off.

    Be sure to check the hiring situation for NPs with no experience. In my neck of the woods, it's not very good. Experience as a counselor is not relevant to the medical skill set needed to safely and effectively manage medications.

    I have no legal background so this is just my opinion but I'm not sure why you feel they are still your patients or the practice has a legal obligation to send them your way. What would you like the BON to do? My understanding is that they are not your patients they are your former practice's patients and although its amazing that you have moved on and are running your own practice don't expect them to fill your docket. Your patients who are interested in continuing care with you will will find you and better to let them come to their own conclusion about the helpfulness or not of the previous practice in that process. Sounds like you should also make sure you are listed on google.
