How Much Do Pediatric NPs Make?
The average annual pediatric NP salary is $125,924 per year in the U.S., according to the 2021 Becker’s Hospital Review.
How Much Do Locum Tenens Pediatric NPs Make?
Locum tenens pediatric NPs can make upwards of $88 per hour on average, however, there are many factors that impact rates including location, years of experience, and the level of demand.
If you were to extrapolate that rate over a year (at 40 hours per week), the average locum salary comes out to around $183,040
That means locum tenens pediatric NPs can make up to 45% more than the average provider. However, making direct salary comparisons can be complicated. While perm pediatric NPs are more likely to be salaried, locum tenens pediatric NPs are independent contractors earning an hourly rate, which can vary based on which assignments they take in a year.
Furthermore, because locum tenens pediatric NPs are paid by the hour, the hours they work are directly reflected in their pay, while a salaried pediatric NPs additional hours may not be reflected in their salary.
Finally, paid time off and insurance may be reflected in the perm pediatric NPs salary structure, but locum tenens providers do have options when it comes to health insurance.
