contract; but this example can prove to the interviewer of an APRN’s worth. Studies show that APRN’s are reducing costs for healthcare facilities (Bellot, 2017). Once I have explained my worth to the interviewer, I would then discuss contract terms. I would like to increase my patient load to about 24 patients per day and no more now. This will increase revenue for the practice and still give me time to take care of my patients in a safe quality level. I would also like to include a bonus feature to the
contract that states if I see 24 patients a day for 4 weeks I will be available for a bonus. Studies show that an NP who sees large numbers of patients is very beneficial to a practice and deserves bonuses (Buppert, 2015). Next I would make sure the contract stays the same about being on call every 3 rd week. Bellot, J. (2017). Does contracting with managed care organizations remain a barrier for nurse practitioners?.

In this scenario, what are you “worth” to the practice? Use logical reasoning and provide evidence based rationales for your decisions. Keep in mind that your negotiation terms and conditions must be within the legal scope of practice for an ANP.
Hello Dr. Shannon and Class, In this scenario we will assume there are 52 weeks in the year with 364 days for this calculation. Buppert (2015) states that an NP who takes 15 patients per day at \$56.00 per patient will bring in a revenue of 193,200.00. This calculation involves taking 52 weeks minus 1 week for education, minus 1 week for illness, minus 4 weeks for vacation; bringing the total to 46 weeks working. (52-1-1-4)=46 weeks The total revenue = (number of patients per day X fee per patient X 46 weeks X 7 days)= (15x56x46x7)= \$270,480.00 So then we take the (total revenue – bring in revenue)/ (15 X 46 weeks X 7 days) (270,480.00- 193,200)/ 4830 = \$16.00 net cost per patient Now if we increase to 24 patients at \$56.00 per visit the bring in revenue would be:
