residents and restrictions on their work (Mennella, 2016). Due to the increase need for NPs in the clinicalsetting it is vital that NPs are fairly compensated for the services and care provided to patients they seedaily.American Association of Nurse Practitioners (2017).

Nurse practitioner salary by state. Retrieved from-practitioner/nurse-practitioner-salary-statistics/Hi Clovalyn,I think the negotiation strategy you mentioned (seeing more patients) in your initial post for discussionone regarding organizational behavior and business influences on APN and specialty nurse practitionerpractice was an excellent suggestion. I agree with your suggestion that seeing more patients woulddefinitely generate more revenue for the practice. In reviewing negotiation strategies with my contractrenewal, as one suggestion I would recommend the physician transition me from being a contractemployee to a full time NP. In my opinion I believe begin a full time employee, I would be able to providecare to more patients in the clinical setting.Mennella suggest Medicare, third party vendors, and severalprofitable managed care organizations reimburse for services provided by NPs (2016).Anothernegotiation strategy in which the practice could generate more revenue would be to review the types ofservices provided to patients. Even though the team may agree to increase the number of patients seendaily, if more services were offered the team could see less patients daily and generate more revenuebased upon services provided to patients.Mennella, H. A. (2016). Billing: Nurse Practitioners.CINAHL Nursing Guide,?direct=true&db=nup&AN=T902417&site=eds-live&scope=siteHello Dr. Lane and Classmates;One of the negotiation strategies I believed would increase revenue in the practice is to see morepatients daily. Today a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) can safely see more than twenty patients during a
regular work day. According to the American Association of Nurse Practitioner ([AANP], 2016), themajority of NP’s see an average of three or more patients hourly. Another option to increase revenuewould be to implement limited extended office after hours on specific days during the week, where eachemployee is scheduled to work in the clinic. I believed many individuals would utilize these services toavoid long wait times in the emergency department. Extended hours in a primary care practice settingcan generate increase in revenue. As stated by American Academy of Family Physicians (2014), afterhour clinics are successful in the community and have proven to be profitable in increasing revenues bytwenty-eight percent over a period of four years. .
