I'm new to this forum and wondering if anyone could help me. I finished my NP program last December and have been looking for a full time NP position since that time. (I do currently work as a NP in an urgent care center, but it is only a per diem position with no chance of full time now). I have been offered a full time NP position in the Pre Admission Testing department of a local hospital; however, I am concerned that this position could be somewhat limiting. From what I've been told, the job would involve physicals, reviewing EKGs and labs, etc. and there is no formulating diagnosis or writing scripts (I don't even need an NPI or DEA). Would a position like this limit my job possibilities in the future?
If anyone who works in PAT could give me their thoughts, it would be greatly appreciated.
