Hi There, Congrats on the job interview
. I currently work in a Clinic very similiar to the one that you described. I started as a brand new nurse back in Jan 2010. I really enjoyed working with the population and it is very good experience. I was never really that interested in working on a floor even though I know I will have to at some point to gain that experience. In order to succeed in this role you should talk about how your culturally competent, understand of different populations, be familiar with meds (BP meds, Cholesterol Meds, Coumadin etc), be a very effective communicator, and also also have strong documention skills. My facility does use MA's. They bring the pt's into the room, do VS, obtain urines, assist with PAP's, clean rooms, schedule follow up appts. Nurses do all the MA tasks PLUS do prescription refills, desktop/answering calls, triaging patients on the phone/ walk in, meds (IM. Subc, nebs, PO meds), call pt regarding lab results and much more! My clinic is very busy and that best part about working in Family Medicine is that you will be more than likely working with children as well. It is very valuable to be able to work with pediatrics and adults. If you have any more questions let me know!
