    i posted this question in another forum by mistake. i am now posting this question here. i was wanting to know which is better to work for a doc or a hospital? i am a first year nursing student and have heard that a doc's office is better and the pay is better. let me know what you think. i would like to here both sides of this issue.
    well,what i can say about that is:
    the hospital is better to work for than working for a doc because working for an hospital will make you more enlightened than you think.
    also,better still,you know what you want,i guess.

    Working with an hospital is almost the same as working with a doc because there is no way you will work with doctor that both of you are not working with the hospital.
    Thanks.

    If one day you are walking on the beach and you see your footprints being erased by the waves of the sea.
    What will you do to imprint them back?.

    I know this is an old thread, but I had to chime in. I have worked weekend option in L&D at a hospital for the past 6.5 years. I'll tell you, answering phones and doing paperwork and occasional vital signs sounds heavenly to me. I guess you could say I am BURNT OUT!

    I used to work week-end option LDRP and now work at a Plastic Surgeon's practice.......Ummmmm, the switch to office atmosphere is nothing short of FABULOUS---- No vitals, no report, no call lights, 8 hour work day, on and on! It's the best decision I've made! Plastics offers free perks like Botox, fillers, peels, and one surgery per year.......Not everyone's priority, but I LOVE the benes!!!!!

    I am amazed at how old some of these threads are. Has the lure of being a nurse died down? Where has everyone gone

    I cannot wait to leave LTC to work in the clinic. No alzheimer's patients who try to hit you, you stool-filled depends, no angry families who want to know why mom or grandma can't walk anymore (well they're stage 6 dementia now...) or rude doctors who won't take on-call for patients who are very acute, families who want everything done for 100+ year olds with no quality of life, constant falls and neuro-assessments, chasing people with their walkers or begging them to use call lights so they don't fall. then the ones who think pain pills are tic tacs. -sigh- I am so ready to go to the office and have a+o patients who after the visit- GO HOME lol.

    I think you will gain more experience by working in a hospital at this stage in your career. It is easier to go from hospital to doctors surgery than to go from doctors surgery to hospital. Your skills are still new and require repetition to maintain.
