    Hi Brian,

    I saw this on the list and even though you sent it a few months ago, I thought I would respond 🙂  Our NP’s are divided inpatient and outpatient, but the outpatient group does help provide inpatient coverage by covering hospital patients (rounding only, no call) on holidays and weekends.  Due to the way we have it structured, this comes out to a weekend day (Sunday, usually) every 6 weeks or so and a major holiday every other year – not too bad.  We are not directly remunerated for this, but it is calculated into our base salary structure.  Night call and phone coverage are not things that we are responsible for as of yet, they do come up regularly as a possibility.  Nothing definitive in place at this time.  Hope this is helpful.

    We NPs traditionally have worked weekdays, no nights, holidays, weekends.  Talk recurs occasionally of asking us to work these hours. 

    Do other NPs receive any pay differential or incentive for nights / weekends / holidays?
