    NP salary/pay let’s be transparent

    In addition to receiving formal education for First Assist, I received training from the surgeons. I see preop and post op surgical patients in office. I do know many NPs working in surgery in some aspect ( first assist, post surgical oncology plastics in office, gyn onc surgery etc.) Also, insurance companies reimburse for my role as first assist.

    NP salary/pay let’s be transparent

    Transparency is important so we can negotiate. As a new grad nurse practitioner I accepted a ridiculously low paying position and I assumed that was the pay in the new city I move to. I have grown over the past couple years and I understand I was taken advantage of. I hope that this doesn’t happen to others. Therefore, I believe it is critical we know what other nurse practitioners are being compensated so we are able to negotiate our salary and benefits packages. I’m an FNP-C in Houston area working in Surgery (first assist, preop, and follow up post op care) Salary is 110k (negotiating to 115k), 3weeks pto, 9 paid holidays, 1500 CME/yr, paid DEA, malpractice, 401k without match, 4 day work week (40-50hrs), on-call practically all the time (but only get calls on surgery days 2-3days/week). Overall I’m happy with the work I do. What is your compensation package look like?

    Also, one of my friends that applied to the new grad program was just contacted for an interview. He has no oncology experience and they are also advertising for this job on indeed. Realistically, I'm not quiet sure what the odds are for a spot in the next RN program, but if you have no other leads for a job...I'd do it.

    No, they didn't ask me to bring any of that in. Maybe they asked you because you are coming from far away and wanted to make sure you can have that done.
