Nurse practitioner Salary

  1. There are tons of these out there, but most of them seem to be old, closed posts. I will also add a poll to this post. Seems there are a lot of people wanting more thorough data than only what can provide. Hopefully this post will provide a salary expectation for fnp hopefuls, students, new grads, and people considering the field of nursing.

    This poll isn't helpful unless you say how many ears experience..

    That would be a complex poll lol. I guess this can be for people that are close to new grads or new grads

    Advance Healthcare network for NPs & PAs has a good break down of 2013 National salary survey

    2013 National Salary Survey Results on ADVANCE for NPs & PAs

    I would like to hear how these compare of those on here.

    Do PAs really make more that NPs? I currently work in an ER with other PAs and NPs and we all make the same salary. However, I honestly though NPs would make more and be more desirable overall.

    I know a few PAs hitting close to 200k (many 150k with normal hours). Out in my area PAs make a bit more because they staff specialized areas while NPs dominate primary care.

    Pa make more cuz like dranger said they specialize more often. And their are more male pa. Male nps usually command a higher salary also it seems

    I only make 95 working 42 hr weeks as a new grad. Night shift. Few extra shifts a month at the clinic will push me close to 120 here shorty. I am rural though. Rural ky. Our clinic nps make from 85-110 85 bring base and then incentive if you see more pts. One guy was pulling close to 120 for a 40 hr week since he was very fast

    I live in a low cost of living area in the South. Here when I graduate I can expect $75-85,000/year without experience.

    I live in Miami, Fl and myself and most of my classmates started with a base salary of 80k with bonus incentives.

    I'm in Boston, if you couldn't guess, lol . I'm finding most starting NP salaries here (with my nursing exp figured in) are anywhere between 105K-114K

    Right, that is by choice. I volunteer my time (retired from a paying job). However, I think in my area of TX where I lived before moving overseas, I would say 70-80k...I've not worked as a NP stateside.
