Current job offer.  In privately owned urgent care center.  3 Day workweek, can work more if wanted. 11 hr days.  Full time is 1600 hours/year.  Start at $35/hr while doing “boot camp”/orientation.  (Made more as a nurse but it’s just a short time) Orientation can last 1-3 months.  After that will get $60/hr (about $95k/year at 1600hrs).  After two years goes to $65/hr.  1 week paid vacation but can take time off without pay when needed.  Open holidays and weekends.  Weekends just once a month (they have prn staff who cover weekends).  Closed for major holidays.  Minor holidays are reduced hours.  Very flexible scheduling.  They schedule 3 months in advance (I don’t like that).

Clinic staffed with mainly paramedics, EMT-I and RN’s. (Yay!)

Expected to see 3pts/hr.  Scribe assigned to each provider (no additional cost to provider).  Pt leaves with dc summary in hand.  Provider to call pts with follow up lab work.

Quick chem 8, ultrasound and X-ray available.  Will be adding CT soon.

Everyone seems very happy there.
Work hours are 8:30-7:30.  Clinic closes/stops taking pts at 7pm-ish.  

$1500 CME.  No license reimbursement.  Malpractice provided.

Full benefits (medical, dental, 401k with 4% match).

Thoughts?

Although I am no NP, I am currently waiting for admission to an NP school... I think the orientation pay is a bunch of BS... $35!!?? that's insulting! Are you supposed to eat ramen noodles for 3 months while you "train"? I would try to negotiate that to your regular rate of $60.  What city is this job located? Have you gotten any other offers?

Re: orientation question - do you have to get credentialed? That can take time. However, during this time, are you on your own with someone co-signing your charts or are you following someone?

I will not be on my own during this time.  I will be in the process of getting credentialed.  When I go on my own, then I get full pay.  During credentialing, someone will be signing off on my charts.
