    What is a typical schedule for your NPs (e.g. 5 days a week, 8 hours/day; 4 days a week, 10 hours/day) in the outpatient and inpatient settings?

    We have NPs in the clinic that do 4 10 hour days.  Inpatient we have some BMT NPs that do 12 hours and do 13 shifts every 28 days.  We do not currently have NPs covering the hem/onc patients on our inpatient floor.  That may change in the future.

    What is a typical patient load for NPs in the outpatient setting?  Inpatient setting?  Do you have any caps on the number of patients an NP can see? 

    NPs see anywhere from 8-16 patients.  It depends if we have full day clinic or ½ day clinic.  Inpatient BMT NP covers all the patients.  We have some transition now but the plan will be no more than 5.  It has been higher in the past.  No cap on the outpatient setting.  A good portion of these visits are with an attending. 

    What types of patients do NPs see in the inpatient setting (e.g chemo only; any hem/onc/bmt inpatient)?

    Currently BMT only

    Do NPs see patients on the weekends?  Do they receive additional pay for this coverage?

    BMT inpatient only.  Part of their schedule.

    Do NPs take call?  Is this phone availability only or are they physically present in the hospital?  How often?  Do they receive additional pay for this coverage?

     

    No

    Do you have NPs who are weekend only positions, PRN, or “floaters”? 

    No

    May I list your answers in a compilation document and share it with all who respond to this question?

     

    Yes please.  Thanks,

     

    Joan
