After years and years working in busy hospitals and travel nursing, I have settled down in beautiful Montana and have landed a FABULOUS job in a Ambulatory Clinic for a FNP. The hours are great, the staff is great, the patients are like heaven compared to the busy understaffed hospitals!!
However....yes you knew that was coming...I find myself feeling like a fish out of water sometimes. What I am looking for is some educational materials to refresh my knowledge of what I need to know about being a clinic nurse. I have looked on the "certification" website and found a Core Curriculum for Ambulatory Care Nursing book that I can buy, but I am wondering if any of you have any information or websites I can go to to refresh what I need to know. Or even insight of what I do need to know.
We see patients from babies to gereatric. No OB. But we do GYN. We also have an inhouse lab, fluoroscope and EKG. Of course we also do minor sutures and casting.
Thanks for any and all help!!
