Hi All! I am a recent graduate and very recently just passed AANP boards. I moved back to Mississippi and have been very curious about FNP or APRN salaries in general. I have looked at websites and Salary Advance, but I would like to hear from the people if you don't mind. So, if you don't mind sharing, what was your starting salary and where in Mississippi do you work. If you don't want to put a specific place, just please state regions (North, Central, South). Thank you so much for your help.

Wow. I know this post has been here a while, but I felt bad when I saw no one had responded. I live on the gulf coast (Biloxi/Gulfport) area. My first job was with one of the Coastal Family Health Center Clinics, and they pay only about 70k per year with fully paid health insurance (so-so coverage), and 2 weeks PTO, etc. My current job is with a pain management clinic doing pre-injection exams, injections, etc. It pays $50 and hr, but is only part time, so I get only one week of PTO and $500 CEU as benefits, no health insurance. I also have a side job at an urgent care a couple days a month that is as an independent contractor that pays $65 an hr (but remember I have to pay my own taxes and stuff). My boyfriend works in a minor care in an ER as an NP and gets $85 an hr with no benefits whatsoever. You can opt for $65 an hr with benefits, but he just took the higher pay. Hope all this helps, though you've probably already figured out the pay situation by now. Not many places pay much more than 40-45 an hr in the outpt setting here in south MS.
