What is the going hourly rate for a PRN urgent care position with a large academic hospital system? I'd be doing 40% urgent care complaints and 60% occupational med stuff. Located in a large Midwest city, employed by hospital (not IC), no benefits (strictly PRN). There will usually be an MD on site during the day, but for the evening shifts it is almost always an NP and/or PA closing the clinic alone. I have approx 1 year experience in general practice.
I'm separating from the military in 2 months after 3 years of service as a PA in primary care and was recently extended 2 job offers; one with the VA in primary care, the other an occ med job with a non-profit organization run by Catholic Health Initiatives. As I consider what I'm looking for in my next job, factors such as work-family balance, minimal red tape and stress are more important than pay. Both offer good benefits. Can anyone offer any insight to life as a PA with the VA and how that job might compare with a position with a non-profit? Thanks!
I am constantly looking for ways to broaden by experience and knowledge. I have found my "niche" to work with closed populations - i.e. Dept of Corrections/Mining Camps/Oil Fields & Refineries/Seafood Processing as a solo provider. My ideal job would be: Rotational in nature - 4 weeks on 4 weeks off or less (won't rule out longer - would depend upon the position) Paid travel/housing/meals 10-12 hour shift - prefer nights to days Married status if possible - i.e. I could bring my wife if she wanted to.
