As an advanced nurse practitioner (ANP) I know my work contributes greatly to the overall revenue of the primary care practice where I am employed. As an ANP that sees 20 patients a day on average, and takes call every third weekend I am a revenue producer for the practice owner. Working at the primary care practice for two years I would be comfortable and efficient, my income should increase. As an experienced ANP I would require less consultation and my 20 patients a day would increase (Buppert, 2015). The interaction between APN and patient a significant role in valuation of the quality of services provided. Familiarity and encounter opportunities between APN and patient also factor strongly in customer evaluations (Kim, Shin, Lee, Lee, Kim, Choi, & Ha, 2017). ANPs should know how to calculate the revenue they bring into the practice. A clinicians billings in relation to salary and overhead should determine if the APN is profitable. The case scenario states that I have several strategies in mind that would be helpful in improving revenue, I would share these strategies during my negation. I would be prepared during my negotiations to articulate nonmonetary contributions to the primary care practice, including increase patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes, and patient retention. I would discuss the quality of my patient centered healthcare.
The consistent presence offered by ANPs increases team communication and improves the work culture.
