Dallas RN looking to work in a clinic/office setting. Any suggestions?

  1. Hello all,

    I have one year combined experience as an intermediate care and medical telemetry nurse. I'm certain that I no longer want to work at the bedside. I'm very interested in working with patients in a county health unit, public health, physician office, ambulatory clinic, or pretty much anything outpatient. I love patient teaching and would like to give patients the educational tools necessary to maintain good health. I have applied for several RN positions in clinics and physician offices, but it seems like everyone wants a RN who already has clinic/office experience. Does anyone have a lead on an available position? Thanks in advance!

    Sorry can't answer your question but I totally am in the same boat. It seems you can't get into any other specialty than your own these days because everyone wants experience. It's so frustrating!!

    Thanks for responding AMCNurse! I hope you're able to find the position you want. I will continue to keep applying and interviewing until I get a lucky break. I had an interview today at a TB clinic and I have an interview in a few weeks for a School Nurse position. This experience has definitely taught me how to be patient. Good luck!
