NP starting salary in Chicago?

Posted

Does anyone know what is the average starting salary for a FNP in Chicago and its suburbs?

I have been NP in this area for 9 years. My neighbor just passed PA boards and got her first job in ER at 90k base salary. Please use this as a guide. There are too many NP willing to come in at low salary to get a job. I've had many NP colleagues tell me they made more as staff RN than they do in their advanced roles. Many larger organizations have a range (just like the. Using salary) but if you are interviewing with independent practices, you will need to negotiate. Physicians see the value we add but also want to undermine our worth.

Hope this helps.
