Are you an NP or PA? Also could you clarify the first year salary information? Do you mean that your first year you will make 75,000.00? If so, that to me sounds pretty low, especially for a specialty practice. I make pretty much that in one year at my hospital as an RN in the float pool. I know that some have said I will probably take a pay cut in December when I graduate with my NP, and I always tell them not unless I agree to it. As far as I am concerned we as mid-level providers (not really found of that title) have a huge amount of responsability as primary care providers and we should be compensated accordingly.
Also what about health insurance? Tuition reimbursement? cellphone/pager fees? Subscriptions to Epocrates/Up to Date etc? Just a thought.
Good luck in whatever you decide to do.
