What is your take home?

  1. 3
    Hi everyone. I'm curious as to see what an actual paycheck (before taxes) looks like from an NP. I find salary websites to be not very helpful. So,

    What type NP are you?
    Where (state)(rural/urban) do you practice?
    Are you independent or in a group?
    How many years experience?
    What is your before tax paycheck amount?
    Monthly or bi-weekly?
    Salary/hourly/other(explain)?
    Avg hours on check?
    What are the perks of your contract? (ie. PTO/vacation/bonuses)

    I know this is very personal, but if you are able to provide input, I would appreciate it! I'm mainly interested also to see after the gov/operational costs etc have taken their share, how much are you left with?

    Advanced practice is it's own reward. Trust me, it's awesome.

    I know this is very personal, but if you are able to provide input, I would appreciate it! I'm mainly interested also to see after the gov/operational costs etc have taken their share, how much are you left with?
    Wow, I am amazed at the meaningful contributions here. The willingness of this community's members to put their personal business out there is awesome.
    I can't say my response is either.
    I would more than likely respond more plainly in a PM. But I have in the past posted some very personal figures.

    I feel like this topic has been covered way too many times now. Hit the search button man.

    I think that getting this info out there will only help NPs. To many NPs accept whatever is offered which is usually way below what they bring into the practice.
