You're correct in more ways than one. I feel my supervisor has had it out for me since I stood my ground about wanting more pay when they added a whole new clinic outside my current specialty to my plate. Right now I'm making more than the advanced practice providers at the prison. It just feels like you get the short end of the stick when you win at negotiating. He made the comment that I was clocking in so the prison could see if they were "getting their money's worth" and that's where I drew the line and quit. Of course it was later rescinded but I made that decision based on the fact that I had 300+ hours of unused sick time and there is a procedure I wanted to have while I'm still under the insurance. I have a meeting this week with an outpatient clinic at the actual hospital, but I feel they would just decrease my pay if I moved laterally so I doubt I'll take it. In the end, I feel this is just a wake up call to get out of the southeast region. The doctors I work alongside are awesome but it's clear the same respect given to doctors is not shown to the APPs. When the prison supervisor came to my office to request I audit charts she stated the medical director was asking this of me. When I inquired why the medical director did not come to ask in person, she told me that she was "busy" as if I was not worthy of the doctor's time. I'd been forewarned previously to document all as the prison administrator was known for lying and this was by someone above her. I agree, this is grade school drama at its finest. My only regret is that I am not vested into their pension plan, which is the best in the state, but I cant wait 5 more years for that to happen!
