Hi,

Has anyone gone through the fellowship program at Emory for NPs? How was it and is it worth it? I'm a new grad NP and considering looking into it.

Emory has an excellent reputation in this city.  I would jump on it personally.

Not very high. Fellowships usually pay the same as physician senior residents' salaries so you're probably looking at 50-55K plus benefits and PTO. The real benefit comes after completion of the program, provided you applied yourself to the learning and market yourself appropriately and negotiate salary well based off your extra education.

Neuro, NP thanks for replying. I’ve learned that there are some NP fellowships/residencies that pay 60-70k around the country. As a nurse I make more than 50-55k, so it’s a little bit of a juggle for me to make less with the additional debt from school loans.

You may find places that pay more than the 50-55K quoted but that salary is based on market rate in the area. Generally, NP fellows are paid less than RN's because funding for these program comes from an academic entity (such as a nursing school). I live in Northern California where our NP fellows are paid 100K for the year...but, a new grad RN in the same institution is started at 138K.

Wow! Thanks all for the replies. I thought the pay would be low considering it is a fellowship but I am still interested if accepted.
