It would also depend on the details of the offer, such as benefits, reimbursement, etc. I am a new grad NP and had a set number in my head that I felt I had to be at. Needless to say, I was offered a job with a physician I did clinical rotations with, she's awesome, but I was not offered my "magical number". However, production has been worked into my contract, which will allow me to make much more than my initial "magical number". So, while my base salary isn't quite where I wanted it to be, I will earn much more than if I would have got what I wanted initially. My point is, look at all things considered within an offer, and don't get hung up on one specific number. There are several ways for us to be paid as practitioners, and you should look at some of these options, be realistic, and do the math to see what works for you and yours. Good luck!!
