Salary Negotiation Strategies for APRN and PA’s: Video Blog

Before you begin salary negotiation for an APRN or PA salary, we recommend that you determine your desired salary by using the salary data in the Melnic Salary Survey and make the appropriate cost of living adjustments. Then you are ready to negotiate your salary. 

Negotiations start with information. For the majority of locations, the data in this survey is a good place to start with an average APRN and PA salary of $120,000.  Salaries in the midwest and southeast have increased substantially over the last two years and align with the salary data. In Northern California, salaries are up to 46% higher than those listed in the Melnic Salary Survey. In Southern California, the Seattle area, and New York, salaries are approximately 22% higher.  Start with the salary given in the guide then divide it by 1- the higher percent. For example, for salaries in Seattle, take an average salary of $120.000/(1-0.22)= $153,000 for the average salary in Seattle.  

Once you have a salary amount you are comfortable with for the job(s) you are considering, then you can compare this amount of your offers.  Now it is time for negotiations. Listen to the video to learn how to negotiate to earn what you are worth as an APRN and PA.
