Hello guys. I am curious about the salary ranges. If you see salary ranges in jobs websites like 110k-140k , can any one tell how many years it takes for a practitioner to max out (reach 140k) ?

Depends I guess. In our practice we have a range for new grads but then the sky is the limit for experienced providers.

Sometimes it's productivity based and you have to prove you are worth 140

Since when was $140K the max? Even for primary care, you can still make more.

I read this as this was the STARTING RANGE not necessarily the max.

It’s a way for potential employers to test your negotiation skills and persistence in “settling for” versus “selling yourself” to earn the salary that you justifiably deserve. So yes, it’s arbitrary unless you work in a setting where the union has some kind of algorithm or formula for deciding where your past experience falls in the pay grid.

I thought the same thing. Our facility only lists starting and mid-range, not a max.

I never saw a nurse practitioner job with more than 140k max except psychiatry. I am talking of base salary though, not overtime or other job

The online published salary ranges have to taken with a grain of salt.

1)  Those are averages and/or means, and they include people who are working part-time, which pulls the numbers down.

2)  Pay varies greatly by location.  An NP in SF or NYC is going to make more than an NP in Little Rock, but of course there is also a large cost of living difference.

3)  Primary care NPs can definitely make more than $140K, depending on location.  Kaiser pays up to $150K or more, based on experience.  Acute Care NPs and specialty NPs can definitely make more than $140K.

You can make over $140K in primary care. The larger hospitals in California for example offer this pay grade and over. I have colleagues straight out of school with no experience making this. 

And no, I'm not taking into account bonuses, etc.....
