Get Answers to Your Pressing Advanced Practice Salary Questions
It’s no secret that Advanced Practice salaries are commensurate with education and experience. But, those aren’t the only variables affecting your compensation package. We help answer the questions asked most often by the Advanced Practice Providers we serve.
- What are the most common benefits that APPs receive?
Over 90% of survey respondents report that they receive paid vacation and retirement contributions, but other benefits like bonuses and protected time are less common.
- Is my salary competitive for my role and level of experience?
We break down salary averages for entry level through experienced providers in eight Advanced Practice roles: NP, PA, CNS, FNP, AC-NP, PNP-AC, PNP-PC, NNP, and PA.
- Would I be earning more if I lived in a different part of the United States?
Our guide explains how salaries vary across the nation. We explain why the highest salaries are in the West, but how relocating to the Southeast might be your best opportunity to boost your standard-of-living.
- Are Advanced Practice salaries higher in academic medical centers?
Our salary averages trend higher for Advanced Practice Providers who work in academic medical centers. Learn why we believe these results have less to do with the environment, and more to do with differences in organizational culture.
- How financially rewarding are Advanced Practice Leadership positions?
Healthcare systems across the country are moving toward Advanced Practice staffing models, leading to an increase in AP Leader, AP Manager, and AP Director roles. We show you the salary averages that go along with these emerging career opportunities.
