Colin F. McHugh is an attorney from Vancouver, WA who owns his own practice, Navigate Law Group. He is the nephew of one our members, Elisabeth Grose ARNP.
Mr. Hugh spoke to our YVNPA membership on March 15th about contract negotiations and how to address employee benefits such as 401K, production bonuses, and paid vacation time. He stressed the need to be prepared with knowledge of current rates within our profession and to approach the situation from a “position of power”. This quote cited that fact that most ARNPs do not know their own worth or recognize that fact that we can negotiate rather than accept an initial offer. Several self employed ARNPs had questions for Mr. Hugh regarding hiring other ARNPs as either independent contractors or employees. He stated that each case is individualized and should fit the needs of the practice and the employee.
We also heard from our Information Technology Coordinator, Karl Wright, about our new web hosting and the use of our website as a hub of communication for both social and professional use.Leave a reply →
