- 2.0Nov 8, 2023RN PHNCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsSan Diego, CA
Interesting work, PHN colleagues are the best, great opportunity to learn public health and easy to transfer to various units/switch gears, much less stressful than hospital work. Good benefits (except for the pension)
There is no tier system, so incoming new grads make the same as 20yr PHNs - which is great for new hires but gives no incentive for experienced people to stick around as there’s no “step” system in place to promote, basically a 3% raise per year with your review. So to make more money you essentially have to apply for Sup which not everyone wants to do…Current Pension Plan D is worthless and doesn’t make up for the $40k less you are making than any other nurse in SD.
- 2.0Nov 9, 2023Nurse PractitionerFormer Employee, more than 1 year
-Low-stress job as an NP -No billing requirements, metrics, or pt visit time limits to meet -Family-friendly, easy to get time off -Patients are mostly friendly and thankful for your help
-There is no structure -Managers will not help you get the basic necessities that you need to do your job -Micromanagement from doctors who are not your supervisor -No space designed for NPs. Don’t expect to have your own office, or even a desk. You will sit in an exam room even if you’ve just seen an infectious patient in there. -RNs earn nearly the same salary as you, and have designated desks/clinical space. The starting pay for NPs is $102k, highest paid NPs earn $145k. PHNs make $107k -Reimbursement for licenses or any expense related to work will ALWAYS take several months and you’ll have to follow up a few times to remind management you’re still waiting -ZERO opportunities to grow/change environments. There are only two clinics you can work in as NP
