Students will locate a sample FNP employment contract (may not use the example in the course text) and will review and analyze the contract according to the outline criteria:
Scope of services to be performed and population (pediatrics, geriatrics, family, etc.)
Compensation 
Travel compensation
Gas/mileage
Cancellations
On call time
Bonuses
Duration of employment
How the agreement can be altered or updated
Responsibility for maintaining and paying for credentials
Benefits
Time off and expenses for continuing education
Vacation time
Paid conferences or CME
Restriction on competition
Reasons for termination
Extent of support service to be offered to the NP
Expectations regarding the number of patients seen per day
Expectations regarding non-clinical work to be done by NP
Release to the NP of the NPs quality performance as measured by health plan auditors
This should be an APA formatted paper, and the above items should be listed as section headings where the student or group will give a brief critique under each section of the contract, using the weekly readings as guidance for the critique. As with any scholarly paper, there should be an introduction and conclusion. There should be evidence of analysis (not simply reporting the facts about the contract) by means of comparing some items (i.e. salary) to national or regional norms. Some of the sections may be combined. If the contract is missing a section, note this in the critique. Include the sample contract in the Appendix, and please remove all identifiers if using a real contract from a colleague or preceptor.
