Advanced practice provider compensation is growing rapidly as organizations face ongoing staff shortages and other health care workforce challenges.

Featured in a recent article from RevCycle Intelligence, data from SullivanCotter’s 2022 APP Compensation and Productivity Survey highlights the need for more dynamic compensation practices for nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs) and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs).

Attracting and retaining advanced practice providers in today’s unprecedented market for talent – where the demand for care continues to outpace the supply of providers – is now more critical than ever amidst the current health care workforce crisis.
