  1. Hello, I’m considering a position in sleep medicine. Can anyone tell me what a typical day looks like and if it is feasible to see 16 patients per day? Also what is the typical pay for a specialty position like this? I looked on Glassdoor and it gives a range between $110,000 and $159,000 for VA. I just want to get input from someone who works in sleep. Thanks
  2. Hi, are there any NP’s in this group that can offer pros and cons working as a University Health NP. What are common things treated? Is this considered a low stress job?

    TheEliteNp, how did you get started with owning your own business? Also what state are you in?

    Specialize as an NP ??? Which one??

    I think you have a lot of experience you can bring to the table. You are selling yourself short. They have NPs in every specialty and I’m sure infusion therapy is one. Look on Indeed, put that in your search. I work with an NP who’s background is urgent care and she is not that great at managing chronic diseases like diabetes and then because she wasn’t doing that in her day to day practice. Managing DM and HTN is not always cut and dry.

    Would you be willing to walk away?

    Oldmahubbard, if $100,000 is ridiculously low, what we be considered a reasonable NP salary?

    NP Schedule

    Thank you for the feedback. I’m aware no place is perfect. I have talked to my manager about a few of these issues, like the issues with my MA. Some of this other stuff that’s occurring is because my manager is trying to appease the other 2 NPs because she doesn’t want them to leave. I say that because when I first started there the other NPs were so concerned with my schedule, how many patients I had etc. they state the Dr. I replaced was seeing about 4 patients a day and they were taking the brunt of the work. In a quest to fill my schedule up, my manager told them to give me some of there patients. Of course they gave me the non compliant patients or they ones they wanted to get off there hands. I would see a person once during walk-in clinic and then I would be listed as the usual caregiver. Which also meant I was getting refill requests and everything else I didn’t see the patient for.

    NP Schedule

    I’m new to this board and not sure if this is the right place to write this. I am a NP with a little over 1 Year experience. I work at a busy rural health care clinic. I am really considering leaving and maybe working as an NP part time. Reason: 1. I feel like all the non compliant, uncontrolled patients are transferred to me from the other NPs and even my manager. Most of these patients have been coming there for years and have never been controlled. 2. Many of the patients I’m seeing have multiple comorbidities, including HIV, Leukemia etc. I replaced the one Dr. who left. I have the least experience of the NPs I work with. 3. One of the NPs is out on maternity leave and I am seeing all her patients. (My manager discussed none of this with me) 4. For the first 7 months I’ve worked there I was doing double work because my MA is lazy and acts like he doesn’t know what to do or help. I later found out the NP he was working with left because of reasons like this. 5. I commute 1 hour each way daily Do you guys think I’m overreacting? Is this the norm?
