By now, you’ve probably heard that locum tenens, or temporary, contract providers make more money than providers in permanent positions. If you’ve never worked a locum tenens assignment before, you’ve probably wondered, exactly how much more money can I make as a locum tenens provider?

The answer varies based on factors such as location, specialty, need, and years of experience. Now, we’ve made it easier than ever to get the answer you have been looking for.

We took data from the earnings of providers in our most popular specialties, comparing them to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, to create a tool that will show you how much more you can be making as a locum tenens provider.

The percentages are based off of a standard full time schedule, with a 40 hour work week, and 50 weeks a year.

Are you working as a family practice physician? You could earn an average of 12 percent more by working as a full-time locum tenens provider. Are you a psychiatric nurse practitioner? You could make around 62 percent more with locum tenens. And as a physician assistant in surgery? You could make 120 percent more per hour and per year.

Try the locum tenens salary tool today, and tweet us at @BartonLocums with your specialty to let us know how much more you could make!
