  1. Hello everyone, I recently took a position in an inpatient BMT group and there is an issue with the scheduling. They are actively hiring and 1 more position. We currently have 6 people. I used to work 3 - 12 1/2 shifts per week with 1 week of 4 - 12 1/2 hr shift during the month in a previous role. We initiated 12 hour shifts here at this institution a few months ago to help with continuity of care, however, we have people working 5-6 days in a row!! Which is think it crazy. We are having to pick up "extra" shifts because we are at a high census and low staff. The assistant director is hyperfocused on the "80 hours in a 2 week" period, and I feel like the "how many days in a row" gets overlooked. Oh, the numbers on the chart are the number of hours we have in a 2 week period. We were told "no overtime pay" would be given (even though the nurses are getting time and a half for working extra shifts--I know because I personally asked a nurse). The "critical shortage pay" is regular hourly rate plus $300 extra given on your check for that day. Monday - Friday shifts are 12 hours, and weekends are 10 hour shifts....What types of schedules do you all have? Tell me do you like your schedule? Would you make any changes to your schedule to make it better? Can you attach a copy of your schedule for me to see? I want to gather different ways of scheduling our shifts so that I can present them to my APP assistant director and try to make this better. Thanks everyone! June Schedule Example.docx
  2. Hi everyone, I am considering going to part time from full time. My wife and I own a financial services business and I want to spend more time on my business. How do I go about bringing this up to my supervisor and management?? What would you say? Thanks for your advice! Andrea
  3. I am not an aapa member. I submitted a request for my current job to cover the cost and they of course never got back to me. So I do not have access to the salary report.
  4. Hi Everyone, I have been a PA for 5 years now with 4 years experience in BMT, Hematology/Oncology. My current job, which I have been at for 2 years now merged with a larger oncology organization about 1.5 years ago. However, for some reason, my practice is "financially separate" from the large organization for a certain number of months (which we were told was up in April 2017 and we would be fully "owned" by the large company). Anyways, the large company has increased all advanced providers salaries to the "median" salary (and I have no clue where they got their information from), but those of us in this "separate" practice had a very minimal raise last year and nowhere near what the other APPs are at. Here are the details of my position: Hours: M-F 8:30am-5pm No weekend, no call, no major holidays (we are a outpatient clinic) Hematology Anticoagulation clinic 3.5 days per week (avg. 10-12 patients per day) Oncology 1.5 days per week (11-16 patients on the full day onc; 5-7 patients on the 1/2 day onc) Chemotherapy teaching sessions (1 hour long)- approximately 2 per day Genetic screening visits- about 1 per week (for me for now since I'm just now learning it) Add ons- triage calls come in - usually 1-2 per day My current salary is $98,900 Would you say this is average? I live in San Antonio. What are some good sites to get salary information from so when I'm ready to ask for a raise, I have something substance to back me. Thank you!
  5. I recently declined the offer. We will not be moving to MI!
  6. Does anyone know anything about Locums work in San Antonio? What is a reasonable offer? Is locums work paid hourly? I thought it would be a good idea to do locums while I look for a permanent position in SA. My wife has a potential job opportunity there, so I'm starting to look into this now. Does anyone know the PA salaries (average) in SA? Thanks!
  7. Does anyone know what the average salaries for PAS in Boston? 2 years experience and looking for a position in Bone Marrow Transplant. Thank you :)
  8. They told me they are calling my moving expense a "sign on bonus" and that is their reasoning for spliting up the $1200. I think that is very stingy. $1200 probably wouldn't even cover the cost of moving my apartment let alone half of that!
  9. I was rather dissapointed in that offer as well. $600 will not allow us to move from NYC to MI. I countered again. We will see what happens. We have the opportunity to either move to Detroit or Boston. We are currently weighing our options, but I will not settle for that 80K offer. I am worth more than that.
  10. Anyone know what a decent salary offer is in Boston? Internal Medicine, Bone Marrow Transplant?
  11. Offer came back with no increase in pay, $1200 in moving expenses with half of that paid up front, the other half 6-12 months later. Honestly, I'm a little disappointed. $600 moving from NYC will not help at all. My wife has an opportunity for a position in Boston and we are seriously considering it.
  12. From my previous position to BMT, it was a 7K jump. I thought it was a good deal. And I really like what I'm doing now. :) Although looking to relocate to another state because the COL is just too overwhelming here. Can't take it anymore!
  13. The cost of living here is unbelievable! I pay tolls, MTA fees, parking sometimes.... I make close to 90K with 2 years experience. The COL has really pushed us over our limits and we are now looking to move out of state. I was recently offered a job in Detroit (don't knock it--I'm from there!). I believe it's too low, but I countered. They offered 80K for Bone Marrow Transplant (I have 8 months training from a NYC hospital). We will see where it goes.
  14. I am currently working at a top hospital in NYC in Bone Marrow Transplant. I recently interviewed at a hospital in Detroit (I am a native Detroiter). They offered me 80K. I thought that was low and countered. I have 2 years total experience with 8 months specialized training in Bone Marrow Transplant. What do you think of this offer?
  15. Same here. No contract. It is actually better this way. You can resign whenever you want (granted that you give them adequate amount of notice--usually the amount of PTO time you have.) Just have this "offer" put in writing..ie email.
