Just accepted a position with a community hospital setting. I will be a "pioneer" NP in their organization. Unfortunately I do not feel that their HR department is up to par on their salary and benefit offerings. I came from a solo practice provider where there were no policy or procedure in place. They have classified my position under nursing and I will be receiving the same be fits as all other nursing personnel. I was able to successfully negotiate an equitable salary but fell their "benefits" otherwise are lacking recognition of advanced degree. Are there any other PAs/NPs out there that work for organizations that have some input about their vacation, PTO, sick and/or holiday pay- even continuing Ed expenses, certification , etcAny advice or input would be helpful.
