new job as a PMHNP

Specialties NP

Published

Hello everyone, I am a PMHNP new grad in Florida Clearwater area. I recently got a job offer in a office opened by a NP. It is a 1099 job and I will receive 65% of every patient I see. I will be helped with getting paneled with insurance and no other benefits. I was told that I will be seeing around 8-15 patients a day with some new and some follow up patients. Does this looks reasonable? 

Another question is that is there any good resources or lessons to take for the PMHNP? It has been a few month since I get my license and I would like to have review on the knowledge related to PMHNP practice. 

Specializes in Psychiatry.

Depends. Did they share with you what they are reimbursed for each patient? Is it 65% of the actual amount or of some amount they make up? Do you get other benefits like a secretary and scheduling and someone to do your insurance claims etc? Feel free to PM me.

It is going to be the 65% of actual amount they receive from the insurance. I will have someone doing the scheduling and coding for me. There is no other benefit.

Sounds like a private practice but losing a cut in exchange for staff. Likely a decent job!

Whether or not this is a reasonable job offer depends.  Do you need benefits?  If not, then this may be a decent position.  However, if benefits are important to you, then keep looking.

As a new grad NP, it is really important you have a position that is good learning experience for at least one year, even if it pays less.
