  1. For those working in EM that have moved from a full-time hourly rate to a PRN hourly rate at the same facility and same position, what is a reasonable increase in pay to ask for? I've been there for about 5 years full time (also haven't had a raise in 3 years). I know what other EM PRN gigs pay in my area, but my question is specifically how much more to expect when transitioning in the same position. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello fellow PAs. I am posting this discussion with frustration. I am very disappointed with a PA hourly compensation rate compared to a doctor, I know we did not do an EM residency as compared to doctors, But in certain settings such as the ER, we do the same thing as the doctors but yet we are paid in most cases 1/3 of what doctors make in an ER(the average rate is $210-240 per hour while PAs make on average only $60-80 per hour. In most cases, the doctor’s expectation is that we do everything they do and get paid a fraction, and most of the time we don't get a production bonus like they do and in some cases, see most of the patients while the docs sit on their butts. i am very disappointed with. The AAPA for not advocating ompensation closer to doctors versus nurses. In most cases offers in hourly rate not much more than a nurse! With demand high and the supply low as reported by several resources, why are the rates not going up? It’s about time we have this discussion on the forum. I think our pay is ridiculous for what we do and expectations, and would like to get perspective from the other PAs on their pay, along with potential solutions to raising our pay. Don’t we all think our pay should be closer to a doctor and not a nurse? I say Union!
  3. 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.
  4. I'd like to find out what I might expect for hourly rate for locums work in the San Francisco/Bay Area. I have 10 years of experience in surgery (cardiac 2 yrs, vascular 2yrs, general surgery 5 yrs +8 yrs per diem also covering urology consults/inpatients and some thoracic), anesthesia 1.5 yrs (ran pre-admission testing clinic until practice dissolved), and now emergency medicine x1 year and counting. Willing to do surgery or emergency medicine, possibly urgent care. I've been told by a recruiter $80/hr is a reasonable expectation, but $85 or higher is a rather tall order. Recruiter has also told me licensing can take 6-9 months and would cost $500-900, but then the app fee as per the state board is max $275...not sure whether the info I'm getting from her is trustworthy. Also, I would expect a recruiter to try to low ball you as far as hourly rate is concerned. Looking to relocate there, and trying to decide whether to apply for perm positions up front or do locums for a while to try different things while I acclimate and figure out where I should settle. I have heard that the market is rather flooded with new grads making jobs tough for them, but someone with my level of experience should be pretty in demand. I have applications in for 2 perm positions, one for which I got a very quick response asking for a phone interview, and a slew of recruiters that have contacted me since I updated my LinkedIn profile. Also just sent in my CA license application myself (rather than doing it through a locums agency with the "proactive licensing" option she explained where they say they cover that high cost of licensure and you agree to do an assignment with them, which sounded a bit fishy. In case it helps, I am currently in Boston. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. I was just given an offer for per diem in the ER. The job consists of 24 hour shifts and I would be the only provider. I did two rotations here and know I will be seeing anything from the common cold to full codes/ traumas. No benefits because it is per diem and they offered $51 an hour. I feel this is kind of low based on the fact they are 24 hour shifts and I am on my own and it is the ER. Many of my classmates are signed contracts for 45-55 an hour full time, which includes benefits. Thoughts?
