Practicing Family Nurse Practitioner/Went halfway through CRNA school and changed over to FNP. Best financial decision I have ever made.

FNP2B1's Latest Activity

  1. Actually it's a bit more expensive now with the recent rate increase. Effective October 1, 2020 you will pay $888 every 3 years to have your DEA license.

    COVID 19 Pay rates

    I've been contacted by few recruiters seeking assistance with taking care of COVID patients. The lowest hourly rate was $109 in New Orleans and the highest was $175 an hour in New York City. I have friends who are RNS there and they tell me the work load is manageable. The agencies I spoke with vary on how they treat you. The New Orleans facility puts you in a hotel and give you $76 per day per diem. Your plane flight is paid but you provide daily transportation. You rewash your personal PPD daily. 14 day minimum stay. New York City pays for your plane ride, your transportation from the airport to the hotel, your daily transportation to work and back, PPE and all meals are paid. I think they have good PPE at the NY facility. 30 day minimum stay. Has anybody gone to these job sites yet? I may go to NYC as I have friends there already there on contract.

    That is not accurate. 3 of the 4 agencies I had contracted with in the past sent emails before the end of 2019 that all contractors would become employees. If you are trying to fly under the radar as a 1099 employee in California then I would not be surprised if you receive a letter from the Franchise Tax Board of California questioning your employment and your tax situation. The law is clear. NPs can not legally be 1099 contractors in the state at this current time. There are ZERO exemptions for NPs.

    Nurse Practitioner- Job Outlook

    Too many new NPs, not enough jobs. It is an oversupply situation with stagnant demand. I would not go to school at this time. Jobs for seasoned NPs are even getting more difficult to procure. Sure, you can move to the middle of nowhere and find a crappy job at a FQHCC but I wouldn't recommend it. 2025 is when the government predicts national oversaturation of NPs. It's happening regionally all over the place.

    Psych NPs working in California, what is your salary?

    I'm not a psych NP but a friend of mine who took a job in San Jose was offered $175,000 a year plus full set of benefits working 4 10 hour shifts a week, 3 weeks paid vaca, full medical/dental, 401k. She was a FNP who got a PMHNP certificate. Started two months ago.

    doxycycline

    Monohydrate is less soluble in water than hyclate. Supposedly it has less GI side effects but in my experience they both irritate the GI system unless you take them with food.

    Negotiating a salary increase based on production

    You can ALWAYS ask but if you are asking for more than the MDs make I doubt they will give it to you. Where i was working the cosmetic dermatologists were netting $900,000 to $1,000, 000 a year just to give you some perspective.

    Negotiating a salary increase based on production

    In that job I got benefits. In my current one I do not but it is by choice. I know my figures are on the high end and not the norm. I don't know where you are located so I can't tell you what the market is. Every market is a lesson in microeconomics. You can always ask. They can always say no. If you don't ask you'll never know but I think 20% is reasonable. If you have skills other NPs don't you can ask for more. The owner of the practice knows what you bring in to his bottom line. He wants to maximize it. You want to maximize your earnings. There is a happy medium but like I said earlier always be prepared to walk away ONLY if you have another job immediately available. Good luck. Negotiations aren't for everybody and most nurses accept what ever is offered. I never have.

    Negotiating a salary increase based on production

    You stated that $621,000 was collected so far this year. I just took 20% of that for my figure. The practice will never collect on what you bill. The net proceeds is what funds the practice. If the practice collects 1.2 million in net proceeds based on what you billed then 20% would be $240,000 but your initial figure stated $621k collected

    Negotiating a salary increase based on production

    You can ask for whatever you want. Whether they will give you that amount is another matter. With new grads accepting any job at any salary the group probably views you as a commodity. YOU know your worth. If they can't meet your demands be prepared to walk but before you walk make SURE you have another position lined up. Most providers I know who work on the 20% model get paid on net collections, not gross revenue although most MDs work on the gross revenue plan. Based on your numbers 20% of what your company netted would be $124,200 salary.

    $200,000 salary as a RN, it's true

    Nobody in their right mind would live in Slab City. I worked at a nearby clinic in Niland and it was the worst city I've seen. Literally just sand and meth heads. Slab City was glorified in the movie "Into the Wild" It's an old army base that was abandoned after WWII. There is really no running water besides an irrigation pipe that is broken where the residents bathe, use for drinking and use for toileting. There is no power unless you have solar. Don't go there unless you want to live in absolute poverty. Trash is everywhere and so is the dirt. Summer temps can reach over 124 degrees and winters get below freezing in the middle of the desert. It's free to stay but not worth it unless you are addicted to Meth.

    I did contact them. They stated "we are having discussions" regarding the the bill. I think they dropped the ball when this bill was passed. If you look on their facebook page it states they were in favor of this bill with some exceptions. They should of never been in favor of any part of this bill knowing what it would do to us and to our patients.

    If you keep working as a 1099 the State can sue your doc for violating state law if he doesn't start deducting payroll taxes and providing you benefits mandated by the State.

    New NP pay

    You are making more than most NPs in California starting out. Check out indeed.com You'll see the job listings. If you started in San Francisco you'd make more but the cost of living would kill you.

    I'm a S corp and it is a nursing corp. I've copied and pasted below the business to business exemptions if you want to check them out. A business to business contracting relationship, is exempt from the “ABC” test if the contracting business demonstrates that all of the following criteria are satisfied: The business service provider is free from the control and direction of the contracting business entity, both under the contract for the performance of the work and in fact; The business service provider is providing services directly to the contracting business rather than to customers of the contracting business; That might be hard to get around. The business service contract is in writing; If the work is performed in a jurisdiction that requires the business service provider to have a business license or business tax registration, the business service provider has the required business license or business tax registration; The business service provider maintains a business location that is separate from the business or work location of the contracting business; The business service provider is customarily engaged in an independently established business of the same nature as that involved in the work performed; The business service provider actually contracts with other businesses to provide the same or similar services and maintains a clientele without restrictions from the hiring entity; The business service provider advertises and holds itself out to the public as available to provide the same or similar services; The business service provider provides its own tools, vehicles, and equipment; The business service provider negotiates its own rates; The business service provider sets its own hours and location of work; and The business service provider is not performing the type of work for which a license from the Contractor’s State License Board is required. Note: This subdivision does not apply to an individual worker, as opposed to a business entity. Additionally, all of the below factors must be met for the exemption to apply to the above listed “professional services”: The individual maintains a business location (may be residence) that is separate from hiring entity. The individual may choose to perform services at the hiring entity’s location; If work is performed more than six months after January 1, 2020, the individual has a business license, in addition to any required professional licenses or permits for the individual to practice in his or her profession; The individual has the ability to set or negotiate his or her own rates for the services performed; Outside of project completion dates and reasonable business hours, the individual may set the individual’s own hours; The individual is customarily engaged in the same type of work performed under contract with another hiring entity or holds themselves out to other customers as available to perform the same type of work; and The individual customarily and regularly exercises discretion and independent judgment in the performance of the services.

    He didn't . He is a good friend of mine and I had him look at the law via my cellphone while we were drinking margaritas. I'll see him again this weekend and pick his brain. He mentioned in his brief opinion the spirit of the law is to make all contractors employees except for the exempted groups and trying to use a S corp or a LLC to avoid AB5 might prove difficult to defend if the State's Treasurer decided to pursue legal action. Again it was just a brief opinion.
