Nurse practitioner contracts can be hard to navigate and even tougher to negotiate. Contract negotiation is possibly not even on your mind. But it should be. As a busy NP student or new grad, you’re probably just trying to keep your head above water. You might be thinking, negotiate??! I’m just trying to land a job. Any job. I have zero experience. Or, I’m a student still, I’ll worry about this when I graduate.
Understanding the value of negotiation and actually negotiating in your first job as a nurse practitioner sets you up for success down the road.
