EP PA Salary

Recommended Posts

I am a PA working in an academic setting with inpatient and outpatient responsibilities, as well as performing cardioversions and tilt table tests. I recently found out randomly that I am making the same salary as one of the general cardiology NPs who strictly sees outpatients, and also has less experience than me. Does anyone have experience in whether PAs in EP should be making more than general cards because it is a subspecialty and the EP physicians make more and we likely make the hospital more money? Any thoughts? Trying to decide about asking for a salary adjustment. Any input appreciated, thanks!

I am a PA working in EP. I get paid about the same as a colleague of mine who works on the general service only doing inpatient rounding and stress testing while I have a much broader range of responsibilities in my position - however there is a chance with taking on some more responsibilities that may change in the near future. Is it possible the NP is being able to utilize her RVU's more due to her status as an NP? or is reimbursement different for an outpatient provider in this setting? Your post dates back to November - any update since?

In my experience, EP PA's don't necessarily make any more or less than PA's or NP's in General Cardiology, whether inpatient or outpatient.  It's just a different skill set.  You mentioned that the NP has "less experience" than you.  It's possible that her prior nursing experience was considered to be relevant experience, even if she has little experience as an NP.
