Exactly, I've said it before and I stand by it now and will say it again. If you are not a strong asset to your company with good experience, your job and your salary are in trouble as an NP. I also project from all the research I've done, looking at projections, and using anecdotal evidence from others looking at their hiring difficulties, that if you do not have experience as an NP in the next 5 years you will be un-hirable. There is going to be so many excess NP's well over demand that a new graduate will have extreme difficulty. The last projections predicted well over 40k surplus of NP vs projected demands with no state being having a deficit by 2025. This by no means surprises me. I would also venture to say that this projection actually under projects the surplus from their inclusion that only a net growth of 53k primary NP's will be produced in over ten years. Last I looked AANP had 26,000 new NP's graduate this last year. At 60% being primary that equates around 15k new NP's. We obviously are going to continue to produce a net much larger than 53k in which the survey originally predicted. Yikes, the future looks fun.
