On the surface, that sounds dismal. The salary is pitiful and the bonus is missing a digit. The rest is simply standard (well, the vacation is slightly generous, I only got 20 days plus 8 paid holidays and my birthday, not 24). The answers to the questions posed by trauma could sway me, except, that 2 weekends a month simply sucks and my kids would have to be starving and losing weight for me to swallow that bitter pill.
Southern mountains, where salaries are notoriously low but the cost of living is NOT.
The paid time off is for whatever - vacation, holidays, sick days, etc.
Capped at 16 patients per day, which includes new consults and rounding on existing patients.
Agree with Blue Devil. The 2 weekends a month would kill it for me. Unless..you are able to string together 4-5 days off in a row every month so you don't have to use your PTO. One of my friends works a 7 on 7 off schedule and rarely uses vacation time. When he does, it works out that he has 3 weeks off in a row while only using 7 days PTO. That's not so bad, if you can get it. Is that salary in line with other jobs in your area?
I've been an in-patient NP all of my NP career. I've preferred being hired directly by the hospital because I find the benefits more generous. If I am to work weekends, holidays, and off shifts, I'd rather get differential pay for it. I'd rather be eligible for a pension in addition to Tax Sheltered Annuity such as 403B. I'd rather have good health insurance that I don't have to pay for either. I actually also prefer the 12-hour shifts which really ends up being 12 days a month. I can't comment on the pay, I live in a high cost of living area and that pay is not good here. Having said that, OP, if that's the only option you have and you're ready for a change and feel that this is a good fit for your lifestyle and interest, I would consider it.
