Retail Clinic salaries

  1. 0 I was wondering what the avg salary is for FNPs in retail clinics such as minute clinic and take care health clinics. And what about per diem shifts? I'm seriously considering working in such a setting a few years after getting some experience.

    In my area (central IL) the hourly wages are $50-60/hour.

    I have a PhD and DNP prepared NP colleague in Virginia who does a few Saturday's at a Minute Clinic because his <well known top tier University> FT faculty position pays so poorly. I don't know what it is exactly, but he did say it is roughly double what the hourly rate from the University would calculate to be, so I'm guessing around $60 an hour.

    in NC minute clinic type places pay a litte less than the two previous posts. I know FNP's and PA's who work in that setting and they do not get 60/hr... it is most likely because they are younger and do not have that much experience. I think its more around upper 40's/hr for them.

    In my area, it hangs around thye $50/hr range. My clinic offers an incentive if we see more than a certain number in one day as well.

    I've never heard of these clinics. What types of patients do they see? Thanks.

    ANything that walks in the door, lol. Mostly cold/cough type stuff, occasionally we'll get a serious one, and then you have the ones that treat them as the ER.
    Basically, if you can dream it up, we've seen it.

    Definition:

    A recent and emerging issue in NP practice has been the growth of retail health care clinics located in major retail chains such as Target, Wal-Mart and drugstore chains such as CVS and Walgreens. Most of these retail health clinics (also called the “convenient care industry”) are being staffed by nurse practitioners and provide patients with fast, affordable treatment for routine medical conditions as well as preventive care. NPs are using their skills to assess, treat and prescribe medications, in addition to providing health screenings, medical tests, vaccinations/immunizations and physicals in some locations.

    These clinics provide an alternative to an ER visit for those who have, as AngelFire stated, colds, ear infections, requiring a flu shot, etc. They are located in very convenient areas. And, it takes a very adventurous NP to tackle this type of setting.

    My very uneducated information is that providers in these clinics are limited to very strict treatment algorithms...am I misinformed?

    psychonaut:
    i have heard this as well... to the point that an NP was chewed out for doing what any good clinician would do as a treatment--because it went against the protocol for such symtoms. I get the reasoning behind the structure with a system such as minute clinic, but i would be really unhappy having to follow 'protocol' all the time. Maybe one shift a week but full time would render me brain-dead.

    Which is why I said the APN must be "adventurous". Read that, "highly structured" and able/willing to follow rote protocols. Stepping out of said protocols is "practicing medicine w/o a license".

    I can't imagine treating a patient according to an algorithm.
    I can't imagine any NP agreeing to such a thing.
    Just does not make sense.
    I don't think legally the clinic can "hold" you to any algorithm.

    Legally, I don't know, but as a condition of employment? And working with the sure knowledge the "clinic" will NOT back you up if you deviate form said algorithm? I would definitely be wary.
