You knew some things would be different when you decided to become a Nurse Practitioner. You would need more education; you’d have a whole host of new job-related responsibilities; you would probably even have different work hours. But did you expect the job search process would also be drastically different as an NP?

Nurse Practitioner Jobs, And Job Offers, Are Totally Different From RN Jobs

The job offers that you had as an RN were probably pretty cut and dried – most are a combination of hourly rate, insurance benefits, and perhaps some continuing education money. As an RN, you may have been through the job-hunting process several times – making you an expert on that process. You might expect the NP job search process to be very similar. Spoiler alert: not really.

Finding the right fit in a prospective workplace doesn’t have to be a mystery, and you don’t have to go it alone, either. This week, we’ll talk about some of the differences between RN and NP job searches, how to navigate the differences, and find the job (and job offer) that is best for you.

  • What to do if you end up in a toxic work environment
  • How to really calculate your hourly rate as an NP
  • What does scheduling have to do with a job offer?
  • Thinking beyond salary when evaluating your job offer
  • The role of productivity and RVUs

You worked really hard to be a candidate for NP jobs. You deserve to go into the job search – and negotiation – process with as much preparation as possible. Whether you are on the hunt for your first job as a new grad Nurse Practitioner or you are an experienced NP looking for a workplace with a better fit, having a good understanding of the ins and outs of Nurse Practitioner job offers will benefit you.
