perform according to a job description. In a percentage salary arrangement, an NP is paid the amount the NP bills minus accounts receivable, minus the NP’s portion of practice expenses (which includes the expense of physician consultation). In a base salary plus percentage arrangement, an NP is guaranteed a set salary but can make additional salary if he or she generates practice income over some set amount. NPs working on an hourly basis are paid only for the hours worked” (Buppert, 2015, p. 331). I personally found trying to select a contract a little overwhelming. This is what I came up with: 20 patients per day ($56/visit) = $1,120/day 5 days a week = $5,600/week 52 weeks – 4 weeks vacation = 48 weeks worked = $268,800 Minus 40% for overhead expenses = $ 161,280 Minus 15% for physician consult services = $ 137,108

NR-510-WEEK 3-DISCUSSION-PART 2 3 After completing the above calculations, I believe my renewal salary should be around $ 137,000 a year for an experienced NP.
