Have been asked to work "per Diem" since retiring in June. Being given 100% of surgical assist fee. Business manager wants to discuss per diem rate for rounds and clinic hours. Can anyone help me with a fair hourly rate (paid malpractice benefit only)?

I have the privilage to work with NP's and PA's in all 3 areas I work. I have found that the pay is fairly close here in TX. What i have seen corresponds to a previous post, PA's are in more surgical specialties. The NP's I work with int he ER don't/can't sew, they can't do I&D's, and they are weaker in Xrays than the PA's. But I think it's an education thing that is perpetuated by the nursing establishment. If more NP students would demand the opportunity to train with surgical providers, this would change.

TO the other request for where to find info on pay, AAPA has a great resource. ANd I believe the NP groups do as well.

CME days / year
Money for CME/Per-Diem/Registration per year
Licensing and credentialling, testing costs reimbursement, etc.?
