If you work as an RN, PA, or NP. Can you please share your approximate salary? And how much to expect as a new graduate? And how long you are working. Thanks.

You should be more specific as to location. I find nurses jobs in the Midwest and I know the pay here very well but it doesn't help you if you live in NY or California.

The field you're in makes a huge difference too. Are you working inpatient or outpatient? Primary care or specialty? Peds or adult?

Anyway, OP, for general info you can check Glassdoor or salary.com. You can put in the state and specialty and get a salary range.

I’m a resident physician. However, I have looked at a lot of published data on salaries in these fields. NPs/PAs generally make ~100K - 150K/year as W-2. CRNAs usually make 150k-180K.

For more accurate data broken down by field, look up MGMA medical compensation data for 2021. I will try to post screenshots.

Also depending on your state NP vs PA have very different career options and pay. Where I live, I find my customers prefer NPs over PAs. Some wont even hire a PA. PAs tend to work in limited settings like orthopedics, hospital medicine like ERs and urgent cares. Specialty offices here and there hire PAs like when I needed to see a hematologist the practice was two MDs and a PA. But my kids ped will not hire PAs only NPs. You dont want to limit yourself do a lot of research if your just looking into a career.

My sister is a dermatology PA for a big group chain. She's working for less than 2 years. She works full time and on Sundays. She started around 140k and just got a significant built in raise.

Derm (and NY derm especially) is one of the higher-paying fields for PAs and those numbers sound accurate. Starting out though in a hospital/non-derm clinic would be closer to 100-120K.

She probably makes similar to what an actual internist or family practice MD makes.

My husband is a pa in an urgent care in the tristate area.
The timing of his hours isn't convenient.
He works 30 hrs in office per week, and gets paid for 10 charting hrs per week.
He gets paid about 165k per year.

No, she doesn’t. Internists/family practice will start at least at 250K right after residency with a lot of potential upward of that. This is from data culled from thousands of MDs.

My understand is np and pa in hospital start at about 120
Pa and np in urgent care usually pay highest over 150 but in beginning you really do not get training and your just thrown into it as new grad

RN in doctor office is known to be low pay but obviously very dependent on type of office, how big it is and if affiliated with a hospital (might be hospital pay if affiliated with hospital.
I would say 75-95 range
You can get better pay with home care or other non typical nursing fields like mds, intake, case management
