What other responsibilities do you have in addition to seeing patients?
I recently started my first job as an NP. It is currently part time but I would like it to expand into full time. I am in clinic 3 days a week, for about 18-20 hours total. I also get paid for 3-4 hours weekly of "computer time," doing things like updating his website, putting together patient education materials, etc. We may soon be adding another day to the clinic schedule once I am seeing more patients independently.
This is my first job and I am also the first NP to be hired by this MD, so we are figuring this out together. He knows I want full time and that it's in his interest to have one stable FT NP than a string of PTers who come and go.
For the first three months I am being paid per diem (I do not have a contract) but we agreed that when the 3 months are up we would work out a contract. I think it would be helpful if I come in prepared with a list of responsibilities I could do in addition to clinic hours, to make this a FT job. Follow-up and on-call is not really part of this job.
