The Complete NP Negotiation Guide

How to effectively negotiate your next job offer to receive the compensation you deserve.

 Have you ever been frustrated that the job you’re doing doesn’t feel like it's an appropriate compensation for the work you’re doing?

Have you ever wanted to negotiate a job offer but didn't know what to say or how to do it?

Have you ever negotiated a job offer and had it go badly or you didn’t get what you wanted?

I created this Complete Guide for NP Contract Negotiation because I’ve talked to other NPs who have experienced (myself included) the stress and difficulty surrounding negotiating a job offer. 

We’re not taught how to negotiate in school, and in practice, contract negotiation isn’t exactly something your employer teaches you how to effectively do. 

I’ve condensed the most critical elements of how to negotiate contract offers in this guide for you to confidently become a skilled negotiator. 

Through this guide, you’ll learn specific strategies to effectively negotiate your next job offer contract to receive the compensation you desire.  

 This guide includes:

  • Setting yourself up appropriately in interviews to negotiate effectively once you receive an offer
  • Learning when to negotiate and why 
  • Learning the steps of negotiation and what to do and say in each step
  • Recruiter vs solo negotiation
  • How to respond to questions about salary
  • What to do when an employer won’t negotiate
  • Unpacking myths about negotiation
  • Real world case study of negotiation in practice 
  • List of items to potentially negotiate in an offer contract 
  • List of interview questions to ask in every job interview

What People Are Saying:

Thank you Claire for your time and energy today! It was great meeting you. I felt so special being able to have a 1:1 coaching session with you; It felt like a little “treat yo self” gift that has already given me a boost of confidence and worth! I can’t wait to see where this negotiation journey will take me. A big takeaway from our conversation is that this will be uncomfortable but I now know to expect the discomfort and fully lean into this feeling - and not run away! Again, thank you for your advice and energy. Talking to you gave me back some pep in my step that work totally sucked out! (After negotiations complete) With your help, I was able to increase the base salary of both job offers at least $5k. But what helped more was me realizing that I *can* negotiate and that self-doubt and anxiety will happen through this process. Even though I didn’t get most of the things I asked for, you helped me gather the courage to ask for it. Your ongoing support made this process doable. It felt like jumping off a cliff, but you were there to coach me before the initial jump, and then encouraged me through ALL my self-doubt. Thank you soooo much! This was a life-changing process!
