I'm not suggesting you are not competent for your role. I am saying that the FNP is not educationally or clinically prepared to work in an operative environment.

If she is a first assist , then she would be competent.  I was considering a similar role and would have had to become a first assist.

I didn't suggest otherwise, as my quote that you included says clearly.

PMHNP graduated Oct 2019 working in the Seattle area on pace to earn around 250K three days per week seeing patients. No benefits 1099. Also I work from home and see clients only through telemedicine. My SO has been a PMHNP since 2016 and sees Medicaid patients (mostly few Medicare and private pay) in Arizona and earns $85.00/hr no benefits 1099 also working from home.

Also a FNP Surgical NP here ?....

I posted a lengthy post years back regarding how I got interested in the role but my RN background is as an OR RN. So while you are correct the FNP program provides very little in terms of hands-on training, real work life experience and on-the-job training is where is really starts to come together for us Surgical NPs.

Primary care, 40 hours, 150k after bonus, 5k CME, 150 hours PTO not including about 8 holidays, 5 yrs experience, Texas. Lots of opportunities for OT, but would rather spend time with the family.  

I am curious as to what your opportunities for OT in primary care are?

This is absolutely horrible. Are you outpatient or inpatient? How many patients do you see a day?

 

You're working 45 hours a week with no paid holidays or time off. Doing the math on that, you're making about $38-$40 per hour doing a job that likely makes your practice several hundred per hour depending on how many patients you see.

 

It's clear NP schools don't do a good job teaching NPs how much money we bring in to a practice and how to demand our worth.
