You are reading page 2 of Salary range means?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I agree that this topic can be very subjective.  Clearly making 140+ is necessary just to survive in a place like SF or NYC.  Keep in mind, that these NPs making 140+ in these places are not paying 800.00 a month for their home.  I am going to school currently to get my CNS, in the state I live in, APRNs all make comparable salaries, except CRNAs of course.  Mosr APRNs I know love what they do and are not rolling in dough.  This is not a profession you go into for the paycheck as much as for the desire.  $$ is certainly more reasonable than nurse educators make, but the newer grad NPs in my facility make less than a RN with 6 years of service (union scale), and NPs who work at the heart clinic at my facility report making much less than we do as RNs.

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

Well you’re not looking. I got offer for 120k as a new grad south in pulmonary group

That's just ridiculous and hard to fathom. As a provider, I would certainly like to earn more than I would make working as a nurse. All that education and you are not getting properly compensated.

Although I absolutely agree with you, that is something that I am looking at when I go from being a RN with 12 years of experience ~52.00/hr to an APRN with 0 years of experience ~47.00/hr.  With years of experience of course the APRN will outpace the RN, but going from bedside nursing to advanced practice, for the first couple years, I will experience a pay cut.

Wow is all I can say!  Thats very sad. I've been an APRN for almost 13 years and was an RN for 12 years before that and I got approx $15k raise.
