Employment Contract for Nurse Practitioners
by Carolyn Buppert, MSN, JD, ANP

  • Have you ever wondered what should be included in an employment contract?
  • What a reasonable salary request is?
  • What other NPs are being paid?
  • What benefits you can expect?
  • What protections you must have?

Nationally recognized NP/Attorney Carolyn Buppert, MSN, JD, ANP, has developed an easy-to-use template that allows you, the NP, to approach the troublesome task of negotiating, writing, and revising an employment contract with ease.

By "filling in the blanks" you produce a legally sound, professional, employment contract to share with your employer. If you need to make a change, you do it yourself in 5 minutes and reprint it. It's that simple! With internet access you can do this on your time and even in your pajama's!

Can you imagine the price you would pay to have an employment contract drawn, if you could even find an attorney with the specific knowledge of the Nurse Practitioner world? Thanks to Carolyn Buppert you won't ever have to go through the expensive and time-consuming process!

You won't believe the nominal fee! Just $250 for the employment contract.

If you would like Carolyn to review and comment on your completed contract, there is an additional fee of $150.

You can submit up to 3 questions to Carolyn regarding your personal employment situation and she will respond to you by telephone or e-mail for an additional fee of $150.
