ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In late 2011 AdvancedPractice.com, a firm dedicated to matching great employers with highly-qualified Advanced Practice Providers for locum tenens (contract) employment, commissioned a survey of 880 Providers -- asking them to share their annual compensation, their outlooks on their role within medical care in the U.S.; and their reasons for recent or planned job changes in a market that remains strong for this professional group.
Some highlights of the just-released findings from the study include:
- 72 percent of APPs say they are currently 'Satisfied' or 'Very Satisfied' with their current responsibilities within their jobs.
- 56 percent see APPs as 'gaining more responsibility within the delivery of patient care'.
- Among those who see APPs gaining more responsibility, only 24 percent believe that 'compensation is keeping pace' with their increased responsibilities.
The complete survey report is available on the AdvancedPractice.com website: www.advancedpractice.com
With the economics of U.S. Healthcare delivery changing, the role of Advanced Practice Providers (Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Certified Nurse-Midwives and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) within that service model is increasing. AdvancedPractice.com, with its focus on this employment category, will also be participating in the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner (AANP) and American Academy of Physicians Assistants (AAPA) national conferences later this year in support of these providers.
