Isn't that about what staff nurses in the area make though?

If 175K a year = $93/hr (based on a 36-hr week), over here where I work, that would be a Nurse II with 30 years experience or a Nurse III with 20 years experience. However, it only takes an NP II 4.5 years here to reach that salary. That is based on our union contract. In our institution, years of experience is cumulative which means total RN + NP experience which would benefit new NP's with years of RN experience.
