I have just been offered an Ortho Hospitalist Position and am going to be meeting this week to get the salary, benefits, ect this week. I need to be prepared for negotiations, but I can not find any data on salaries. This position is through a very large Ortho private practice. The practice does all the Ortho for the hospital in addition to having their own day surgery, clinic, and office( they are now building an additional 20k sqft surgical center and office attached to the existing building). There is one NP already doing the position I was offered and I will be the second. We do all the Ortho consults, round, and follow ups. I have been offered an FNP position at a family practice for $95k. I also have an NP on my floor where I work as an RN that is a new grad Cardio Hospitalist and she started at $130k with no nursing or cardio experience. I live in New England and he hospital I will be working in is a fairly large hospital. Any info on salaries, opinions, or experiences would be appreciated. Thank you!
