How are nurses able to get in the clinic sector? I keep hearing from the hiring managers that they want medical assistants or you must have clinic or hospital experience. I dont have hospital experience because the hospials only want BSNs for the new grad internships. Ive been told by hospitals that nursing home experience doesnt count because its not acute and clinics say nursing home experience doesnt count either. So how do new grads get into the clinic/ambulatory care sector?
