I am just looking for advice from nurses who hold a similar position as the job I am interviewing for. I have an interview in a few days for Office Manager/RN of a busy After Hours Family Care Clinic that is part of a large hospital network (3 hospitals-1 is major in the state, a physicians corp., and several outpatient and satelite facilities) I have 2.5 years of Med/Surg/Tele experience (I have been a nurse for 2.5 years and went to nursing school
right out of high school so I am young) and would love the opportunity to get into management and off of the floor. This job from what I have been told so far would involve doing management tasks and serving as a clinical RN. The clinic is open M-F from 5-9p and 10a-6p on the weekends. When the clinic is open I would be expected to serve as an RN and help with patient visits. I would work more like 3p-11p during the week and use the hours the clinic is closed to do management tasks. I would work every other weekend (when I work the weekend I would get 2 days off during the week) I have also been told that the clinic is extremely busy and that the administration is currently in the process of trying to justify more staff. (I have been told I will rarely if ever get out on time-sometimes as late as 10p on Saturdays).
My question is
A) Does anyone have a job like this and do you enjoy it?
B) Does anyone work in an after-hours clinic setting? What is it like? Pros and cons?
C) Do you think my age (I am 23) would help or hurt (or have no effect on) my chances of landing this job?
D) Where should I begin my pay negotiation? Obviously with the management aspect of the job I would expect more than what I have been making on the floor-but how much more? (I hope to be paid hourly not salary as I expect to be required to stay late almost every night)
E) Any advice on questions to ask during the interview??
Thanks for reading!
