Pay for Advanced Practice Clinicians Rises 3% in 2012

Over the past 12 months, advanced practice clinicians received a median salary increase of 3 percent and an average salary boost of 3.9 percent, according to the 2012 Advanced Practice Clinician Compensation and Pay Practices Survey.

The survey, conducted by the American Medical Group Association and Sullivan, Cotter and Associates, gathered compensation data on APCs from more than 275 hospitals, health systems and physician practices. APCs include certified registered nurse anesthetists, midwives, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Overall, 62 percent of respondents reported some type of pay raise in 2012, and more than half of healthcare organizations plan on boosting salaries again in 2013. The projected average and median salary increases are 3.1 percent and 3 percent, respectively, according to the survey.

"While reported salary increases continue to be moderate, the increases show no sign of abating," said SullivanCotter Principal Kay Jensen in a news release. "Drivers of demand and salary increases include responses to physician shortages and repositioning of the workforce to ensure all medical professionals can work to the top of their practice level."
