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

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

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
The total revenue = (number of patients per day
X fee per patient X 46 weeks X 7 days)=
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:
