Which Pays More: Inpatient or Outpatient NP and PA Jobs?

Posted on November 9, 2018   |   by   |   Advanced Practice Provider, Job Seekers, Salary

When it comes to your NP or PA work environment, are you more of an “innie” or an “outie?” Your answer affects your pay and your lifestyle.

The differences between working in an Inpatient or Outpatient practice attract people with different life goals. And there’s nothing wrong with that!

If you choose inpatient, you probably have Acute Care certification and longer and less predictable schedules. On the upside, you have more opportunity for advancement and more earning potential over the course of your career.

Curious why you’ll likely have higher salaries in an Inpatient setting? We explain on page 12 of our latest 2018 Melnic Advanced Practice Salary Guide. It’s a free download when you participate in this year’s anonymous salary survey.
