I was just recently offered a job in the rural midwest. Pulmonary with hospital rounding and call (they couldn't tell me how much as its a new position.) I will be their first NP.
They originally offered me 90k/yr + rvu bonuses with full benefits, a 3 year contract and 10k sign on bonus. 27 pto days and 3 CME days and $3,000
I told my recruiter I would like a shorter contract with $100K and more CME days and maybe a relocation bonus as well.
They came back with a 2 year contract, $95k year 1 and $100k year 2 + rvu bonus. Same $10k sign on bonus, and still 3days/$3000 for CME.
I happen to think this is pretty good considering most of my classmates are having trouble getting interviews. However, I Just don't think 3 CME days will be enough. They want an answer in 7 days. Would you re-counter offer for more CME days?
