Advanced Practice Salary Guide

Each year, Melnic Consulting Group compiles a nationally-recognized advanced practice salary guide for the benefit of nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), and clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), as well as employers. We interact with hiring managers and job seekers daily, which helps us identify and interpret trends in compensation.

Our salary guides provide data on average salaries for advanced practice providers, including NPs, PAs, CNSs, and AP Leaders in primary practice and acute care. We conduct an annual survey to gain self-reported data from more than 750 working healthcare professionals across the United States.

The projected salaries for each position reflect starting pay only. Bonuses, incentives, and other forms of compensation are not taken into account. Unless otherwise noted, the ranges represent national averages.
