Grow Your Career

APP Clinical Ladder

Our unique APP Clinical Ladder supports career growth with a structure that recognizes professional goals and contributions. Sound is committed to team-based care, development, and incentives that reward success. Productivity and promotion bonuses will add to compensation based on tenure and level of performance. No matter where our nurse practitioners are in their career, our APP Clinical Ladder provides opportunities for growth during your career at Sound.

Dedicated Collaboratives

Sound engages APPs through our specialty-specific “Collaboratives,” teams comprised of three Executive Council members and ten APPs within our specialty lines: critical care and emergency medicine. Collaboratives help grow APP-driven care models, provide support, share leading practices, and promote professionalism and clinical experience across our organization.

Path to Partnership

Sound Physicians thrives because our colleagues have an owner’s mindset, where all contributions are valued and rewarded. Nurse Practitioners with tenure of two years with a proven track record of good citizenship and meaningful contributions to their team are rewarded by achieving partner status leading to income growth and in some cases unique voting rights within a group. Those with tenure of five years are eligible for senior partner status resulting in ownership within Sound through an equity grant.
