  2. Hi, Trying to get some information regarding critical care PA compensation in order to present a reasonable salary and raise structure to our group with an increasing number of PAs. - Currently we work day shifts only, 8am-8pm - around 2 weekends per month, no extra pay - holidays as scheduled, no extra pay - Good health, dental, 401k - start at 1wk vacation per year, increases yearly by a week up to 4wks per year - 8 hours sick leave per month - $1000 CME, but no extra CME time off - they pay for all licensing, DEA, etc. We currently get paid per shift, our contract states 163 shifts per year, but if we work more than that we get paid the per shift rate (nothing extra for more than 3 shifts per week/ more than 40 hours per week) So: What are people seeing as starting salary for new grads in critical care and what are shifts per week to be considered full time? What are average annual raises/ cost of living raises/ salary increases with years of experience? Do people generally get extra pay for more than three 12 hour shifts per week? Differential for weekends or holidays? Bonuses? If so, what are they based on and how much are they? I have 8 years experience in critical care. Anymore with similar years of experience, what is your pay/salary? what is your average patient load for a 12 hour shift? Thanks so much for any help you all can give!
